After months of creating and developing our biggest show yet, we brought Tita Jokes to the 2019 Toronto Fringe. As part of the grassroots social media campaign (created by the Titas!) #FilipinxFringe, our show, alongside Through the Bamboo and Monica vs. The Internet, brought a massive Filipinx audience to the Toronto Fringe! Our show was met with great success, having a nearly sold-out run, winning the Tarragon Mainspace's Patron's Pick and the Second City's Outstanding Comedy Award! We accumulated pre-press from major media outlets such as Toronto Life, and rave reviews from NOW Magazine, Toronto Star, Mooney on Theatre, and local theatre critics. You can check them out below:
NOW Magazine: “NNNN”
Mooney on Theatre: “Tita Jokes is an exquisite, hilarious, multi-layered spectacle”
Istvan Dugalin: “Tita Jokes provides laughs, challenges your expectations”
We can't wait to perform Tita Jokes again in the fall at Second City's John Candy Box Theatre as part of our award! Will we be on the main stage later this year? Stay updated to find out!
I'm excited to be heading into some exciting new theatre project later this summer and early fall! I'll be heading into a development workshop with Bad Hats Theatre, exploring the world of Alice in Wonderland.
Come this September, I'll be in rehearsals for Cahoots' and bcurrent's co-production of Hilot Means Healer, which will be presented at The Theatre Centre this October! I promise to update everyone on how the project goes!
