SEA: FLORODORA: REIMAGINED IN SEATTLE

The musical draws its name from the phrase Flor (flower) odor (odor-scent) ahh (delightful), thought to be the Sampaguita, the national flower of the Philippines, from which the perfume is extracted. Set at the time of the Philippine-American War and growing US imperialism, the musical has been re-imagined from a Filipino perspective. Florodora was a huge success in both London and New York - even claimed to be the very first Broadway "hit", but also with its timing in Filipino-American history (the Philippines became a US colony in the late 1890's). Though the setting was in the Philippines, the original script had no Filipino cultural references. This provided an opportunity to adapt the material by making it more Filipino, thus reclaiming it in "Florodora Reimagined." The production is funded by the Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, ArtsCrush, the Filipino Community of Seattle and by individual donations to Pinoy Words Expressed Kultura Arts. $25 ticket includes the show plus a Filipino buffet.
