Actor JC Santos Returns to the Stage as Lam-ang in 2020

Because the first two-week run wasn't enough!

( When Tanghalang Pilipino announced that they’d be staging the ethno-epic musical Lam-ang for two weeks in December at the Cultural Center of the Philippines in Pasay City, we hoped they'd extend. And it seems our wish was granted, in a way: In a report by Theater Fans Manila, the theater company's artistic director Nanding Josef revealed during the closing show on December 15 that Lam-ang is set for a rerun in August 2020.

Lam-ang is based on the Ilocano epic titled Biag ni Lam-ang (The Life of Lam-ang). It stars JC Santos, who is known for the rom-com television series Till I Met You (2016) and films Sakaling Hindi Makarating (2015) and 100 Tula Para Kay Stella (2017). Prior to his appearances on the small and big screens, the 31-year-old had played a range of roles on stage. This is his first time to play a lead role in a musical.
