What comes to your mind when you hear the name "Lorenzo?" For Filipinos like me or those who has been living in the Philippines, I'm sure you're thinking about the first Filipino saint, Lorenzo Ruiz. 

This September, the award-winning actor, Christopher de Leon through Green Wings Entertainment Network, Inc. presents a new musical directed by Nonon Padilla, which features the musical stylings of Ryan Cayabyab and libretto by award-winning writers Juan Ekis, Paul Dumol, and Joem Antonio called "Lorenzo."
Lorenz Martinez and OJ Mariano star in this musical which tells the story of Saint Lorenzo Ruiz’s escape to Japan and subsequent martyrdom there, is framed within a play that tells the modern-day story of Laurence, an OFW whose imprisonment in a Middle Eastern country and imminent execution prompt him to reflect upon the struggles of his historical countryman and cope with the inner struggles of his own predicament.

"Lorenzo" is deeply relevant to Filipinos from all walks of life as its themes span the unquenchable rage of the suffering man to the cathartic acceptance of one’s circumstances, the struggles of our ancestors to our struggles in the ever-changing contemporary world, being apart from one’s home to inspiring others with one’s sense of being a Filipino in a foreign land.
In line with the declaration of 2013 as the Year of Faith, this show, "Lorenzo," touches upon the theme of faith as a heroic virtue and how faith moves one to make the most powerful albeit difficult choices. 

The show will be staged at the SDA Theatre, located on the fifth floor of De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde on P. Ocampo St., Malate, Manila on September 12, 13, and 14 with shows at 1pm and 6pm.
