Caredivas (2011)


Matapos ang ilang taong paulit ulit na runs ng Zaturnnah, meron na tayo ulit bagong mapagsasawaan – PETA’s CAREDIVAS!

Written by Liza Magtoto, with music and lyrics by Vince de Jesus (Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah) as inspired by the documentary Paperdolls and directed by Maribel Legarda, CAREDIVAS will tackle the lives of 5 Filipino transgender in Israel who are working as Caregivers during the day, but changes professions whenever they get spare times.

Yes – as Drag Queens

This campy look at the challenges of Filipino gay men in a Jewish country, doubled with the harsh realities of gender discrimination, inevitable heartbreaks and familial responsibilities, will show new empowering perspectives in Philippine theater this February.

Some of the cast members include Melvin Lee, Vincent De Jesus, Ricci Chan, Jerald Napoles, Phil Noble, and Buddy Caramat.

Can’t wait – can’t wait!

Show opens on February 4!!!
