As we continue to adjust to our current situation, so do our theater production people. Tanghalang Pilipino (TP), the resident theater company of the Cultural Center of the Philippines, adapted new means to create platforms for their endeavors. They found a new home online--PangsamanTanghalan, Tanghalang Pilipino's online Youtube channel, was made to provide audiences with an alternative space for shows while still under quarantine.
They initiated PansamanTanghalan by producing and publishing their first monovlog series. Lolo Doc, a monovlog written by Layeta Bucoy, encapsulates the situation our pandemic frontliners face at the moment through the eyes of an ageing doctor. Lolo Doc was played by TP’s very own artistic director, Fernando "Nanding" Josef.

This monovlog has resulted in a collaboration between TP and one of Philippine cinema's greatest performers. Nora Aunor will take the role of Lola Doc, the much-awaited sequel to Lolo Doc. Lola Doc will be followed by more performances to be announced in the near future.
Lola Doc will premiere on TP’s YouTube channel on May 21 at 6pm.
The pandemic has limited the means but certainly not TP’s creative spirit. They want their audience to know that they are still here to keep theater thriving even under quarantine. You can support them through subscribing to their YouTube Channel. Your support will help them carry their mission to make an efficient platform for theater during these trying times.
