Get ready to fall in love once again with Star Cinema’s cult classic, which now features the songs of Ben&Ben.

“Sana ako pa rin… ako na lang… ako na lang ulit.” Ah, who could ever forget the iconic lines of Popoy and Basha in this timeless film? No matter how many times you watch it, these words still resonate deeply.

Well, guess what? In less than a year, we’re going to go through this heartbreaking and emotional tale of love once again—but this time, it will be on stage as an unforgettable musical featuring the songs of the nine-piece indie folk band Ben&Ben.

One More Chance Musical: What We Know So Far

On the final show of Walang Aray, the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) made an exciting revelation: they will be transforming the beloved Filipino film, One More Chance, into a musical. This announcement not only caught the audience off guard but also featured a surprise performance by Ben&Ben, who enchanted the crowd with their songs Kathang Isip and Araw-Araw.

In the official Facebook account of PETA, it posted: “Natapos man ang lovestory ni Tenyong at Julia, simula naman ng kwento nina Popoy at Basha. Kamay sa dibdib, mga mangingibig. WALANG AARAY dahil muli tayong iibig sa susunod na handog ng PETA. One More Chance The Musical featuring the music of Ben&Ben. An ICON for an ICON. Star Cinema’s cult classic meets the music of the massively popular and award-winning Filipino nine-piece band.”

Still available for streaming on Netflix, One More Chance is a 2007 romantic drama starring John Lloyd Cruz (Popoy) and Bea Alonzo (Basha). Resonating with audiences for its portrayal of the challenges and choices faced by couples in long-term relationships, the film explores the complexities of love, heartbreak, and second chances as the couple navigates the challenges of adulthood, careers, and changing aspirations. It was such a huge success that a sequel came out in 2015, titled A Second Chance.

Now, nearly 15 years after its initial release, this modern cinematic classic is being transformed into a musical, featuring the talents of Ben&Ben. While we don’t have all the specifics about this upcoming musical just yet, it’s safe to say that 2024 promises to be an exciting treat, not only for theater enthusiasts but also for devoted fans of the film and its beloved on-screen pair. This adaptation will likely bring a fresh wave of nostalgia and romance to the stage, making it a must-see for anyone who’s been touched by the story of Popoy and Basha.

Would you give this musical one more chance iln April 2024?
