Netizens greeted the release of Ang Huling El Bimbo The Hit Musical with praises and positive reactions after the whole musical premiered on digital screen
Viewers applauded the musical’s creative expression of different issues like education, politics, rape, and sexuality depicted in the songs of OPM band Ereaserheads.
Old time fans of the band also expressed their approval for the rendition of a few of Ereaserheads’ iconic songs, including Ligaya, With a Smile, and the titular Ang Huling El Bimbo.
