“Ground breaking for CCP’s new Black Box Theater set”
THE complex development of the Cultural Center of the Philippines takes off with a new Black Box Theater to be constructed in the sunken parking area of the CCP complex, thanks to the efforts of theater arts patron Ignacio Gimenez and brother Roberto Olanday with the support and administrative assistance of the Locsin Partners. A ground breaking ceremony was held on January 19, 2016 to mark the beginning of the said venue’s construction.
