MAKING MUSICALS based on the popular songs of established musical stars seems to be the thing to do — abroad, think Mama Mia! which features the songs of ABBA, and locally, there is PETA’s popular water-logged musical Rak of Aegis, which features the songs of the popular jukebox band Aegis. Now Resorts World Manila (RWM) is getting into the game, presenting two musicals based on existing popular music. First announced was Ang Huling El Bimbo which features the iconic songs of local band the Eraserheads which will run from July 20 to Aug. 26 at RWM’s Newport Performing Arts Theater. This will be followed up in October with All Out of Love the Musical featuring the hits of Australian soft rock duo Air Supply.
