Felix Starro is the first ever musical created by Filipino-Americans to be featured Off-Broadway. Based on a powerful short story of the same title, this musical by Jessica Hagedorn, follows a famous faith-healer in the Philippines along with his grandson on a mission in San Francisco. Felix Starro explores the issues of faith, love, betrayal, and what it means to be an undocumented Filipino immigrant in America!

Why Watch Felix Starro

With America’s growing restrictions on immigration policies, the plight of Filipino immigrants is on the rise. The headlines scream of immigrant families being broken up almost every day. The first Filipino-American musical to hit Off-Broadway tackles similar themes. Felix Starro’s script and lyrics are written by Jessica Hagedorn, a Filipino who moved to the US in her early teens. She is famously known for her novel Dogeaters, which won the American Book Award in the 1990s. The music is by Fabian Obispo, who shares the same roots as Hadegorn.

Based on a short story of the same name by Filipino-American writer Lysley Tenorio, Felix Starro tells the tale of the eponymous protagonist, a famous faith-healer in the Philippines and his grandson Junior. Themes of faith, family, love, and loss are intertwined in this musical which aims to document the undocumented life of an immigrant in contemporary America. The producer, Ma-Yi Theatre Company, aims to serve as an incubator for exploring what it means to be an Asian American in today’s world.

The Story

The musical follows the story of Felix, a famous faith-healer in the Philippines whose customers came from the big league of celebrities and politicians. After reaching a hard place and following an unfortunate downfall, Felix decides to move to San Francisco to lead one last mission which is to attend to ailing Filipinos in the Bay Area. He tags his grandson along with him, all the while being oblivious to the boy’s own sprouting plans. With the help of Flora Ramirez, a woman who deals in fake identities for those who remain in America illegally, Junior Felix has grand plans of eloping with his grandfather’s questionable earnings to make a life of his own in America.
