The Dolphy Theater welcomes Dolphy one final time

The King of Comedy comes home to his Kapamilya and takes one final bow, quite appropriately, at the theater named after him. The Dolphy Theater was filled with tears, laughter, memories and the overwhelming love for our beloved Mang Dolphy.

Eulogies from his loved ones made the tribute more meaningful and personal. His on screen wife Nova Villa brought the house down with her tearful yet humorous message. His son Eric Quizon’s eulogy was very casual but totally heartfelt. But it was his great love Zsa Zsa Padilla’s eulogy that brought everyone to tears. She shared the life and love she had with Dolphy and ended it by singing to him “Through The Years”. Every note and every line was deeply affecting and completely powerful. The audience responded with a standing ovation for the
woman who stood by the man we all loved until his dying breath.

Dolphy has gone but the love & laughter will live on because it will never be forgotten.
