The story of Ang Huling El Bimbo centres on four college students, whose friendship is tested after a personal tragedy. The musical features iconic Eraserheads songs such as ‘Pare Ko’ and ‘Alapaap’, along with the title track.
The three-hour-long musical first resurfaced online in May this year when it streamed for 48 hours as strict quarantine procedures commenced in the country.
