Joy Luck Club for the Joys of My Life

So the search for the best V-DAY gift for the Family is over.
I finally found something both different and very VERY affordable!

The Joy Luck Club
The Joy Luck Club, the best-selling novel by Amy Tan, which was also made into a movie directed by Wayne Wang, is now a play. Repertory Philippines is staging "The Joy Luck Club".

The play is a chorus of eight voices of tightly woven stories. It tells of the lives of four Chinese immigrant women and their four American-born daughters. The four mothers create a mahjong group called the Joy Luck Club and audiences will see the stories of the members of this club unfold.

At turns funny, touching and heart wrenching, the play showcases the rich complexity of love between mothers and daughters that transcends age and cultural gaps.

Adapted by Susan Kim and directed by Anton Juan (recent credits include the non-stage, multi-floor production of "Information for Foreigners"), the powerhouse cast includes Rebecca Chuaunsu, Joy Glorioso, Frances Makil Ignacio and Pinky Marquez as the mothers; and Ana Abad Santos, Lily Chu, Jenny Jamora and Cris Villonco as the daughters.

Costume design is by Eric Pineda with set design by Ohm David and lighting design by John Ilao Batalla.

Rep associate artistic director Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo says, "It's a great way for families, friends and couples to celebrate Chinese New Year, which kicks off the month on Feb. 3. The show will be great for Valentine's dates as well."

Gold or Silver season ticket passes are available for these three productions which provide a discount and choice seats at selected dates compared to buying individual tickets for each of the shows.

All productions are available for showbuying and block ticket sales for individuals or organizations who would like to earn extra income or raise funds. All productions are also available for sponsors who wish to reach Rep's audiences.
