Watch ‘Ang Huling El Bimbo’ musical at Resorts World Manila

If you’re a fan of Eraserheads, known to be the country’s most iconic ’90s rock band, you should definitely see “Ang Huling El Bimbo” musical at Resorts World Manila.

In the musical, Eraserhead songs were woven into a story that promises to stay in the hearts of Filipino audiences for a long time. 

Presented by RWM and Full House Theater Company, the second run of the “Ang Huling El Bimbo” musical started on March 1 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater. 

Aside from featuring Pinoy ‘90s anthems from the country’s Fab Four, the tale of four friends takes audiences on a rollercoaster ride of emotions that stems from the brilliant mind of playwright Dingdong Novenario, and personified onstage by director Dexter Santos.

“The audience response to Ang Huling El Bimbo was very positive to say the least,” associate director Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo said, “All this confirms the keen interest there was in the show,” she added.

The musical’s first run last year garnered the most number of citations from Gawad Buhay during the third and fourth quarter of 2018 with a total of 14, and with new cast members, more nominations are expected along the way.

For the second run, new facets complement the production. Fresh cast members Nicco Manalo, Lance Reblando, David Ezra, Phi Palmos, Myke Salomon, Rafa Siguion-Reyna, Gabriella Pangilinan, and Carla Guevara- Laforteza also join the original cast of Gian Magdangal, Reb Atadero, Boo Gabunada, OJ Mariano, Bibo Reyes, Jon Santos, Tanya Manalang, and Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo. Audiences can expect additional lines and dialogue for more engaging scenes and tighter repartee between the characters. 

The upcoming iteration of the musical also features a fine-tuned and more gripping narrative which was polished by prominent dramaturg Floy Quintos who joins the creative team. 

Artistic director Michael Williams expressed his praise to audiences for their continued support not only for “Ang Huling El Bimbo,” but for the numerous Filipino productions in performance onstage as well.

“Productions like Ang Huling El Bimbo allow the general Filipino audiences to recognize theater as a viable option for their entertainment,” he said. “Our show has found its audience, and the audience has found us. It’s a mutual discovery and we hope that relationship continues to grow,” Williams said.

“Ang Huling El Bimbo” runs until April 14 with shows every Thursday to Sunday at 8PM, and matinees at 3PM every Saturday and Sunday at the Newport Performing Arts Theater.
