Trivia on Teatro Pilipino

Teatro Pilipino is the only Philippine Theater Company that was able to experiment with three theater seasons within a year; each season featuring three full length plays presented both in English and in Pilipino translation.

Teatro Pilipino was also known for its varied readings of plays based on various literary genre, theories and movements. Most unforgetable was Rolando Tinio's deconstruction of Shakespeare's Makbet, his reframing of Ikalabindalawang Gabi, and his four versions of Laruang Kristal that were alternately presented during its entire run.
