Just to be clear, it's not a "battle of the bands". The music of Eraserheads, Aegis, and Sugarfree -- three iconic bands who made great impact and influence in Philippine music listening, get their respective musicals!
"Sa Wakas" is a rock musical inspired by the songs of the band Sugarfree. Its story plays around the nuances of love and relationships.
"DOTGA: Da One That Ghost Away" actor Pepe Herrera is part of "Sa Wakas," and today, May 25, he called for everyone to come see their play. He wrote, "Sa Sabado, buong araw magsama uli tayo. Nanamnamin natin lahat ng pwedeng namnamin. Tutal huli na naman."
"Sa Wakas" will hold its final run on May 27 at Power Mac Center Spotlight, Circuit Makati.
We all sang along to "Pare Ko" and "With A Smile" at some point in our lives, and we're just so happy to see a reinterpretation of the songs of Eraserheads (Ely Buendia, Marcus Adoro, Buddy Zabala, and Raimund Marasigan) on stage.
The play is aptly titled "Ang Huling El Bimbo," and it's about a group of friends who drifted apart and reunited decades later.
"Ang Huling El Bimbo" will open this July 20 in Resorts World Manila. Here's a sneak peek from the cast, singing their version of "Ang Huling El Bimbo".
Meanwhile, the musical "Rak of Aegis" is not new to the scene. This 2018, they set to return for their sixth-year run, that will start this June 20 and will conclude September 2.
Theater veterans Robert Seña and Kim Molina, who are both cast members of primetime series "Bagani," are also part of the musical.
