Rizal is My President (A Musical Satire)

Rizal is My President (A Musical Satire)
Directed by: Raffy Tejada
Original Songs by: Noel Cabangon
Script by: Joshua So, a Palanca Awardee

Actors are members of the Harlequin Theater Guild of De La Salle University (Manila).

This play was based on the book, "Rizal is My President: 40 Leadership Tips of Jose Rizal" by Napoleon Almonte.
I watched this play on May 9, 2009 at Ateneo de Manila University. The play opens us to a world (heaven) where Filipino heroes would interact and plan something for the Philippines, and having that access to have a second life on earth. Other hero characters want Jose Rizal to run as the next President to save the country from turmoil, inadequacy, corruption and hardships.
