The Cultural Center of the Philippines was built during the incumbency of President Ferdinand E. Marcos for the purpose of developing, preserving and promoting culture and arts in the country. I find the building's architectural design simple yet beautiful. The man behind this structure is no less than Philippine National Artist Leondro Locsin. I remember watching a number of local...

As I understand, this one of Imelda Marcos' projects. It certainly had it's day, yet that day is long gone (think 1980). Only a single window for box office sales and will call?

Went to see a musical play in CCP. Though the building looks old and outdated, the shows running from time to time and worth the ticket prices. Hope you'll be able to feature more Filipino produced musicals & plays

I was surprised that the CCP has an extensive collection of Philippine art. There were a lot of displays from well-known painters like Manansala and Carlos Francisco, and even contemporary artists. I also loved their collection of musical instruments from different parts of Asia and the world.

A very interesting museum! The Philippines are made up of many cultural groups and this attraction explores them all in depth. A great way to spend a morning or afternoon in Manila!

Watched the Australian touring production of Wicked on Feb 2014. The musical was very well staged and all actors gave their best performances. Regarding the theatre, it could do with some sprucing up and some cleaning but it still has that classy feeling of old.
