WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Dually inspired by Calderón's Spanish Golden Age drama The Physician of His Own Honor and the 1990 documentary Paris Is Burning, which detailed New York's then-underground drag queen "ball culture," this fierce and funny new play by Boni B. Alvarez is set in the heart of LA's historic Filipinotown. Miracles Malcañang is a ladyboy masseuse who "walks" for Filipinotown's infamous House of Malacañang. When Miracles's forbidden love affair sparks tensions between the city's hottest political family, two families must come together to understand the power of desire, identity, and honor.
