TFM Review: Maniacal by Nikki Francisco

“Egg Theater Company’s Maniacal is, more than anything else, a revelation. Literally. It allows theater fans a peek behind the curtain– an insightful, albeit exaggerated, peek into its players and how, after everything, the show manages to go on.”

“Adapted from Moliere’s Les Femmes Savantes, Maniacal transports the play’s seventeenth century bourgeoisie and setting to present day Manila and a group of theater and film artists grappling with the ‘pretentious intellectualism’ in creating art. Maniacal recreates Moliere’s commedia dell’arte characters to satirize the foibles and travails of artists who over-intellectualize their craft while trying to make a living.”
