JC Santos plays the title role in Lam-Ang.

Preserved by oral tradition and the first Philippine folk epic to be recorded in writing, Biag ni Lam-Ang (The Life of Lam-Ang) has been adapted into a stage musical by Tanghalang Pilipino. Lam-Ang: An Ethno-Epic Musical, starring JC Santos and Anna Luna, begins performances 6 December 2019.

Manila, Philippines - Directed by Fitz Bitana and Marco Viaña, Tanghalang Pilipino's upcoming reimagination of Biag ni Lam-Ang, retitled as Lam-Ang: An Ethno-Epic Musical, is set to begin performances at Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino, Cultural Center of the Philippines, on 6 December. Starring TV-film stars JC Santos (Lam-Ang) and Anna Luna (Kannoyan, Lam-Ang's love interest), the show will run through 15 December.

Lam-Ang follows the conquests of the Ilocano warrior in the land of Nalbuan in La Union, side by side the "envisioning [of] local traditions that are being lost, ancient customs and lores that are being forgotten, and vestiges of our affluent past that are in danger of disappearing forever," says its program notes.
