Repertory Philippines continues its season with Almost, Maine by John Cariani. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost, Maine’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded—and life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same again. It's a series of nine amiably absurd vignettes about love with a touch of good-natured magic realism. The production runs from February 19 through March 13 at the OnStage Theater in Greenbelt 1. Tickets are priced at P418, P627, and P836.


For ticket inquiries or reservations, call 891-9999.
