If you missed its successful online showing last May, don’t fret – celebrated Filipino musical Ang Huling El Bimbo is making another virtual comeback this November 28 and 29 on KTX.ph!
Fans can purchase tickets for either of two shows, which, just like its original run, will feature two sets of cast.

Drawing their inspiration and music from lyrics by hit 90s band The Eraserheads, Ang Huling El Bimbo is a story of camaraderie told in reminiscent flashbacks. Written by Dingdong Novenario and directed by Dexter Santos, it premiered last 2019 in the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Resorts World Manila and was met with much acclaim for its evocative elegy.
