Marian Rivera makes her stage debut this month as Kreon in the Tanghalang Ateneo production of the Greek classic Oedipus Rex.
The GMA-7 actress will play Kreon, the female version of the character Creon who acts as second-in-command to the present-day Oedipus.
With this new take on the character, Marian hopes to show that women are just as capable and headstrong as men.
She tells PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other Summit Media titles in a virtual conference on February 9, 2021: "Sa panahon ngayon, parang hindi na yata question iyan.
"Mapababae o lalake, parang pantay-pantay na tayo ngayon. Lahat nang kaya gawin ng lalake, nagagawa ng babae."
The play will show virtually on February 22, 25, and 27.
