Ang Huling El Bimbo will be streaming online in the Philippines once again this November!
As previously announced, the musical will be available for overseas audiences starting October 23 through pay-per-view on TFC Online. Fortunately for Filipino audiences, ktx.ph has just made the musical available for local audiences on November 28 and 29 for P600.

Both sets were filmed from their respective closing shows.
