ABOUT THE SHOW:

From comedy legend John Leguizamo and director Tony Taccone comes an irreverent new musical loosely based on Latin American history…very loosely! Travel back to the 16th century as a group of Aztecs lead the resistance against Spanish invaders. With a fierce female warrior at the helm and a not-so-fierce clown in tow, they mount a scrappy attack — and get entangled with royalty, colonizers, pop stars, and puppets! With music and lyrics from Benjamin Velez and David Kamp, KISS MY AZTEC!’s musical fusion of salsa, gospel, hip-hop, funk, and merengue makes for a jubilant and hilarious celebration of Hispanic & Latin culture.

Content Advisory: This production contains bawdy humor, adult themes and language, haze, and flashing lights. Please note that John Leguizamo does not perform in this show.
