With the theater industry slowly getting back up on its feet, Ayala Land welcomed home members of the arts and business communities last July 14 to the Samsung Performing Arts Theater in Makati.

It was a remarkable night to celebrate the return of live theater and gather Ayala Land’s partners in supporting the arts.
