This show got great reviews. I’m so glad PETA decided to have another run because I missed it the last time. I definitely won’t miss it this time!!!… =)

Rak Of Aegis
A musical featuring the songs of Aegis

“A rock comedy musical using the songs of Aegis will tackle Filipino resilience, or how the country faces and resolves compromising situations, whether this be a natural disaster or a broken heart. Set in a subdivision that has been flooded for two months, “Rak of Aegis” will revolve around the love interests of the main characters, whose names are derived from those of Aegis band members as a tribute to the Filipino novelty rock group that made waves in the 90’s.” – Ticketworld
