On Stage, Underwater, and at a Certain Age

This week, we take you to the theater for a play on Filipino immigration, to the ocean with an underwater videographer and to a writer's personal journey towards becoming a septuagenarian.

Elaine Elinson, who did the exclusive interview for PF with novelist/playwright Jessica Hagedorn, now does a review of Gangster of Love, the play, showing at San Francisco's Magic Theater until May 11. She describes it as funny and heart-wrenching, which makes it a good one to catch -- and with a 20% discount for PF readers, why not?

PF Correspondent Rey de la Cruz profiles Robert Suntay, marine conservationist and underwater videographer, who talks about what it takes to film some awe-inspiring sights under the sea.

How does it feel to reach 70? PF Correspondent Myles A. Garcia feels it's time to do the things you didn't do in your youth.
