ILONGGO theater lovers experienced an exciting Valentines night as the Aliw Award winning Philippine production of M. Butterfly kicked off at SM City Iloilo’s Cinema 6.
M. Butterfly’s Iloilo run was made possible by proud Ilonggo and Tony award winning producer Jhett Tolentino together with his co-producer and award-winning actor RS Francisco.
As expected, the viewers were amazed with the well-crafted staging of M. Butterfly, the brilliant scenes, the lead actors’ performances, and stage and costume designs.
“We donated all proceeds here in Iloilo from each one of our shows to the Philippine Red Cross-Iloilo and Iloilo Prima Galaw Arts Institute. It is likewise a great honor for me to bring my first local venture to my hometown, Iloilo and to have the opportunity to give back to institutions based in my province,” Jhett Tolentino said.
M. Butterfly, an internationally acclaimed Play by award winning author/playwright David Henry Hwang, is now on its 30th anniversary. From over three dozen countries worldwide, this blockbuster show has flown a long way before coming to the Philippines, thanks to the generosity of Frontrow Entertainment in cooperation with SM Cinema and SM Supermalls.
Nationwide performances will be held in Dumaguete, Cebu, Davao and Baguio.
