LA TI DO Productions in NYC presents Here Lies Love: A Homecoming Concert on Monday, October 2 at 9:30pm, featuring the cast, alumni and friends of David Byrne and Fatboy Slim’s new hit musical Here Lies Love in celebration of Filipino American History Month in October. See the show’s family return to its original home at The Public at Joe’s Pub as they express their joy and celebrate this watershed moment for Filipinos on Broadway.
Proceeds from the concert will be donated to The Hawai'i Coalition for Immigrant Rights (www.hicir.org), a coalition of organizations that exists to affect positive policy change at the federal, state and local-level so that immigrants/ migrants in Hawaii can live full and equitable lives. Since the aftermath of the Maui wildfires last month, they have been working around the clock to coordinate the response from relevant agencies like FEMA, Red Cross, Department of Health, etc. and other nonprofits to various immigrant/ migrant groups, the largest of which are Filipinos. They ensure that immigrant communities, especially limited-English proficient folks, are being served appropriately.
Participants in the concert include Vina Morales, Vincent Rodriguez III, Reanne Acasio, Roy Flores, Nathan Angelo, Aaron Albano, Diane Phelan, Albert Guerzon, Lora Nicolas Olaes, Don Michael H. Mendoza, Ashitaka Porter, Christiana Meeks, Romeo Torres, Rob Chen, and Fran Mae. Don Michael H. Mendoza and Lora Nicolas Olaes serve as event hosts and producers.
