The case of 29-year-old actor Jonathan Tadioan playing the role of 63-year-old Willy Loman in Tanghalang Pilipino’s production of “Pahimakas sa Isang Ahente”—Arthur Miller’s classic “Death of A Salesman” translated into Filipino by Rolando Tinio—can very well be the theater curiosity of the season.

The veteran actor-teacher, who taught Zoology and dreamed of becoming a doctor before the theater bug bit him

By his own reckoning, actor Fernando “Nanding” Josef—now artistic director of Tanghalang Pilipino—has spent 40 years in theater. This, he said, is instrumental in his getting the kind of unique education he would never have learned in the classroom.

NEW TP president Jolly Reyes Gomez

His assuming the reins as Tanghalang Pilipino’s (TP) new president is a homecoming of sorts for José Luis “Jolly” Reyes Gomez. A businessman who oversees many companies as well as a scion of the family that owns Aristocrat Restaurant, the man says he has always loved the dramatic arts (he was present during TP’s founding 27 years ago) and would like to see its resurgence, especially in the Philippines.
