MANILA -- If you missed all of the more than 100 runs it staged at Resorts World Manila's Newport Performing Arts Theater, from 2018 to last year, here's a chance to savor the stage adaptation of some of the most loved songs of Eraserheads. 

Blending together elements of a musical and a rock concert, "Ang Huling El Bimbo" is an original attempt in telling a tragic story that is relevant, insightful and at times provocative --one that also serves as a tribute to the timelessness of the band's discography. 

 

On Saturday, it was announced that Full House Theater Company has partnered with ABS-CBN to bring this show online --available for 48 hours only, starting from Friday, May 8, 12:01 a.m. on both YouTube and Facebook. The links can be accessed here and here.

The show is free, but it is also being billed as a fundraiser for ABS-CBN Foundation's Pantawid ng Pag-ibig initiative, which has been helping the families most affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
