Felix Starro

FELIX STARRO is a musical by Jessica Hadegorn and Fabian Obispo, based on a powerful short story with the same title by acclaimed Filipino American writer, Lysley Tenorio. Protagonist Felix is a famous faith healer in the Philippines, whose clients once included celebrities and big politicians. After falling on hard times, Felix decides to go to San Francisco for one last healing mission with ailing Filipinos in the Bay Area. Junior, Felix Starro’s nineteen year-old, orphan grandson, goes along as his assistant. Unbeknownst to Felix, Junior has plans of his own.

FELIX STARRO explores issues of faith, family, love, loss, betrayal, and what it means to be an undocumented Filipino immigrant in America. It is the original Filipino American musical we have all been waiting for.
