PETA's Care Divas Back for Encore Performances, April 1-3

PETA's Care Divas back for encore performances, April 1-3
After 36 successful shows, rave reviews from both audiences and critics, numerous sold-out shows and roaring standing ovations, the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA)’s hit musical dramedy “Care Divas” is back for a series of encore performances.
The extended shows are on (Fri) April 1, 8 p.m.; (Sat) April 2, 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. and (Sun) April 3, 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Seen at the PETA Theater Center last March 13, the closing night of the play's regular run, were Sharon Cuneta, KC Concepcion, Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcacid, John Lapus and recently-turned drag queen actor of “I heart you, Pare”, Tirso Cruz III.
John Lapus shared via his social network page: “Ang husay! So worth it. Congrats to all. Grabe! Uulit ako, PS pinaiyak niyo ako. Im so thankful. Matagal na kong hindi umiiyak.”
In a message sent by Megastar Sharon Cuneta to Melvin Lee (Chelsea): “You are! Ang galing galing galing, walang dull moment!”
In a review by (production designer/writer) Martin Masadao, Legarda is commended for her excellent treatment of the script: “Legarda does not patronize nor trivialize the OFW experience. It was good judgment on her part to exercise restraint so that the production does not come out too campy. The Care Divas' musical numbers are at the opposite end of the usual gay-comedy-bar-routine of excess, slapstick and coarse jesting.”
The show was inspired by general life-stories of OFWs who work as care givers of elderly Jews in the morning and pursue their own personal dreams as drag performers at night.
Written by Liza Magtoto and directed by Maribel Legarda, this highly physical, visually exciting and wickedly funny play stars Melvin Lee, Vincent De Jesus, Phil Noble, Buddy Caramat, Dudz Teraña, Jason Barcial, Eric dela Cruz and PETA President Cecilia Garrucho, guest performer Paul Holme, Ricci Chan, Jerald Napoles, Myke Salomon, Angeli Bayani, Miguel Hidalgo and Dominic Miclat-Janssen. The original music and lyrics are by Vince De Jesus.
