Check out SPOT.ph’s gig guide: 10 Gigs and Parties to Go to This Week: September 24 to 30

 

 

 

Book your tickets to Pahimakas ng Isang Ahente, opening on September 26, 8 p.m at the CCP Studio Theater. The production runs through October 19.

 

Adapted from Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, the local production also finds capitalist materialism at its core. Willy Loman’s tragic downfall stems from his unwavering desire to achieve the American dream. And 65 years later, the obsession with this fantasy still plagues our national ethos; it could very well define the tragedy of the Filipino people. This play addresses loss of identity, an obsession to keep clinging to days gone by, and a man's inability to accept change within himself.

 

Tickets are priced at P824 and P618 (for matinee shows only).

 

For ticket inquiries or reservations, call 891-9999.

 

 

Round up your friends and sign up for Mind Pub Quiz Night on September 26, 7 p.m at The Mind Museum Lobby.
