Fall in love again with Sa Wakas the musical

I’ve seen Sa Wakas in 2013 in PETA Theater and I was devastatingly mesmerised with it. Watching its re-run last Sunday made me fall in love once again.

Sa Wakas the musical is a Pinoy rock musical from the songs of Sugarfree. Yes, you read it write. Sugarfree songs that make us dig deeper from our emotions. The “hugot” songs that connect deeply to our lives and experiences such as Mariposa, Hari ng Sablay, and Kwarto. 

Co-written by Andrei Nikolai Pamintuan and Mariane Abuan, Sa Wakas is a bittersweet contemporary love story. What makes the show unique is its unconventional perspective, adopting an inverse chronology wherein the narrative begins at the end of the crushing breakup and works its agonizing way backwards to the relationship’s starry-eyed beginning. Sa Wakas, which is also the title of the Sugarfree’s first album raises the timeless question: “Why do relationships fail?”
