Eto Na! Musikal nAPO!  is an original Filipino musical with lyrics and music by Danny Javier, Jim Paredes and Boboy Garrovillo, and written and directed by Robbie Guevara. The story takes place in a university in the 70s, revolving around a group of students working hard to win a songwriting and singing competition. They experience a series of ups-and-downs, from first love and heartbreak to fighting to keep their love for music strong and doubting their own artistic abilities - all under the iron claw of Martial Law. Thanks to its charming cast and heartwarming coming-of-age story, it’s sure to bring APO fans back to their youth.
