Businessman Ignacio B. Gimenez, a scholar of influential playwright, director, and actor Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero, has donated a new theater to the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) to honor his mentor, “to give back” to the Filipino people, and to encourage local business community leaders to engage more in Philippine theater.
Informally called “the new CCP Black Box,” the theater is expected to be unveiled in January or February 2017 with an inaugural season featuring new and original Filipino works.
