REVIEW: ‘Eto Na! Musikal nAPO!’ is one satisfying jukebox musical
Set in a university in the 1970s, the musical tells the story of a college barkada who tries to win a songwriting competition. The story follows them through the intricacies of youth and romance during the Martial Law regime.
The show will run from February 2 until March 17 at the Maybank Performing Arts Theater.
