Fly me to the moon, because Mula sa Buwan is back!

November 11, 2018

Curtains have opened once again for one of my favorite Filipino musicals, Mula sa Buwan, and I AM ECSTATIC!

I caught yesterday’s 3PM…

December 9, 2016

When I saw Mula sa Buwan‘s teaser a few months ago, I immediately decided I’m going to watch this production without even knowing yet what it was about. It was THAT pretty and catchy.
