It seems like in the past months, Filipino music has been taking over not just the concert stage but also the theater stage. With shows like Rak of Aegis, Sa Wakas (At Last), and Ang Huling El Bimbo (The Final El Bimbo), there’s no denying that the influence of original Filipino music still lives on and that nostalgia is a powerful thing.
Now, the nostalgia intensifies as Eto Na! Musikal nAPO! runs throughout the whole month of August. If the title did not give it away, this musical will feature the hit songs of Apo Hiking Society—a prominent Filipino band who gave us hits like “When I Met You,” “Panalangin” (Prayer), “Batang-Bata Ka Pa” (You’re Still Young), and “Ewan” (I Don’t Know). While the group has over 200 songs, the play will only feature 15 to 20 songs.
Aside from paying tribute to the formation of Apo Hiking Society, the play will also explore what Filipinos went through in the past 40 years, especially Martial Law. Some of the big names who are part of the cast include Jobim Javier (son of APO member Danny Javier) and GMA 7 artists Rita Daniela and Mark Bautista.
Tickets are available at Ticketworld outlets and Ticketworld online.
