CIRCAPINTIG's "Darna" & "Allos" March 28-30, April 4-6 at Moooh Dulce Theater

CHICAGO- CircaPintig stages "Looking for Darna," written by Chicago-based playwright Lani Montreal, which is a family drama of unspoken love and hidden family histories brought out into the open as Darna, the Filipino superwoman pop culture icon, flashes her powers that strengthen the bond between daughter, mother and grandmother. Cast includes Adriana Cardona-Maguigad, Gigi Mascarenas, Myrla Baldonado, Divine Calo and Chip Payos.

"Allos" was written by Giovanni Ortega, a Los Angeles-based actor-director-playwright whose impressive performing credentials include The Romance of Magno Rubio, Dogeaters and Imelda. Originally performed for the East West Players in LA, the play dramatizes the tenacity and struggles of early Filipino migrants as they deal with racist America of the 1940s. Allos is a homage to the poetic genius of Bulosan, a farm worker turned writer and poet known for his novel America is in the Heart. Cast includes Chip Payos as Carlos Bulosan ably supported by Levi Aliposa and Leo Dave Garcia.

Directed by Louie Pascasio with set design by Gabby Lingat and music by Demetrio Maguigad, "Looking for Darna" and "Allos" go on stage on March 28-30 and April 4-6, Fridays 8pm, Saturdays 4pm and 8pm and Sundays, 4pm.
