Still can't get over your four-year hangover from 2018's Ang Huling El Bimbo The Musical? It's time to prepare your wallets as the hit stage play will start selling tickets this month.

On Feb. 7, Newport World Resorts' production house, Full House Theater Company, announced on social media that it will open ticket selling for Ang Huling El Bimbo The Musical on Feb. 14.

"Huminga ka nang malalim at tayo’y lalarga na! Mark your calendar for February 14 as ticket selling opens to the general public. Stay tuned for more details," the post read.

As promised, Full House Theater on that day released the ticket prices for the hit musical slated to run starting April 21 at 8 p.m. every Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Prices are as follows: P1,079 for Bronze, P1,942 for Siver, P2,696 for Gold, P3,236 for VIP, and P3,776 for SVIP. 

You can purchase them at the Newport World Resorts Box Office, TicketWorld, and SM Tickets outlets.

Directed by Dexter Santos and written by Dingdong Novenario, Ang Huling El Bimbo The Musical incorporates the music of OPM icon Eraserheads into a tale focusing on the "friendship of Joy, Hector, Anthony, and Emman as they navigate life."

The play features almost 40 songs from the legendary band and was staged more than 100 times since its July 2018 debut. This is in addition to the 7 million views it earned during its online run in May 2020.

In November 2021, the show's cast and director staged a live concert, titled "Ang Muling El Bimbo." Concert director Jamie Wilson told PhilSTAR L!fe then that the event serves both as a homecoming for the actors and a "celebration of the return [of plays] to the stage" after the world's years-long lockdown.
