Fans of the Eraserheads can finally take a trip down memory lane as the much-awaited Ang Huling El Bimbo: The Musical takes stage at the Resorts World Manila Newport Performing Arts Theater starting July 20.

The play, directed by Dexter Santos and written by Dingdong Novenario, is “a story of friendship told through the songs of the most iconic Pinoy rock band from the ’90s.” The original story revolves around the power of bond between friends and how it shapes our lives.

“It was a time when you really form friendships and you have this music coming from this iconic band as sort of a soundtrack to those friendships. It continues to be the soundtrack of your life, whether it’s at one very low point in your life, when you’re very happy, or when you’re in love. It’s always there, kind of reflecting how you feel,” Novenario said in a preview video for the musical.

The team behind the musical, which also includes Artistic Directors Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo and Michael Williams from Full house Theater Company, went deeper into the songs. More than 40 songs from Eraserheads are expected to be featured in the show.
“We’re using it in a different way. We’re using the music to tell a story. So, it may not be exactly the way we hear it on the radio or in their cover versions. We’re gonna deconstruct some of it and use some of the lyric to tell the narrative,” Williams shared.
A musical filled with songs that have become part of the collective Pinoy psyche, Ang Huling El Bimbo: The Musical may well be the nostalgia fix everyone has been looking for.
