About Mula sa Buwan
Mula sa Buwan is based on Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac and Francisco "Soc" Rodrigo's Filipino translation of the French classic. The production is set in 1940s Manila, where Cyrano is an artist sent to war and Roxane is a blushing colegiala. Christian, the lead's best friend, falls in love with the beautiful damsel.
The musical was first staged in 2016, and again in 2017 and 2018. They also produced bits and pieces of the show: a one-night-only musical concert in October 2019, online streaming of a few scenes in April 2021, and playback of the musical concert's highlights in May 2021. They staged two post-pandemic reruns in August and December 2022.
