Century Tuna recently launched its new and improved Chili Corned Tuna product line in a festive event that also welcomed its latest endorser, Luis Manzano.

“Consumers of Century Corned Tuna put a premium on value for money and that’s why we’ve introduced this new variant that’s bigger and allows for more servings per can with a hotter flavor,” said Greg Banzon, Century Pacific Food Inc. vice president and general manager.

Banzon added that Century Pacific “is excited to welcome Luis Manzano as the newest member of the Century Tuna family.”

He has appeared in a string of movie box-office hits straddling comedy and drama. He’s likewise a popular TV game show host.

‘The Nether’ in Fila gala

Fila sponsored the gala night of Red Turnip Theater’s “The Nether” at the Spotlight Theater Power Mac Center in Circuit Makati.

“The Nether,” a science-fiction drama written by Jennifer Haley, won the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize. It explores the ethical questions and moral consequences of living out one’s hidden desires and fantasies.

Attending the gala night were Fila Philippines CEO Cris Albert, as well as Wanda Louwallien, Marge Enriquez, Agot Isidro, Rachel Alejandro, Girlie Rodis, Bianca Araneta-Elizalde, Javi and Lexi Berenguer-Testa, and Jake Letts.

In true Red Turnip fashion, guests were treated to an open bar, courtesy of Ralph’s Wines and Spirits.

A hit since it first premiered in Los Angeles, “The Nether” begs the question: In a computer-generated space, is there no room for ethics and morality?

The Red Turnip production stars Bernardo Bernardo, Jenny Jamora, Bodjie Pascua and TJ Trinidad. Making their debuts, young actresses Alba Berenguer-Testa (“Annie”) and Junyka Santarin (GMA 7’s “Pyra”) alternate in one of the pivotal roles.

Ana Abad Santos, Red Turnip co-founder and award-winning actress (“Apocalypse Child,” “Time Stands Still”), returns to the director’s chair with her own, brilliant, intelligent take on the one-of-a-kind thriller.

Après the successful opening, the audience hailed the production as “arresting,” “provocative,” “daring and relevant” and a “rare gem of an intelligent play.”

Only four years old, Red Turnip has already left an indelible mark in the theater scene. “The Nether” surely adds to its growing list of groundbreaking achievements.
