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.

 

MORE SEATS ADDED!

Since the announcement of the production, more seats have been put on sale including an added performance on Wednesday, June 1 at 7:30PM, plus a new zone of seats closer to the stage for all performances.

ACERCA DEL SHOW:

Creada por John Leguizamo y el director Tony Taccone llega esta nuevo irreverente musical basado en la historia Latinoamericana… ¡muy, pero muy libremente! Kiss My Aztec!, viaja al siglo XVI cuando un grupo de aztecas lideró la resistencia contra los invasores españoles. Con una guerrera feroz al timón y un payaso no tan feroz a cuestas, organizan un ataque rudimentario y se enredan con la realeza, los colonizadores, las estrellas del pop y los títeres. La fusión musical de salsa, gospel, hip-hop, funk y merengue de Kiss My Aztec! lo convierten en una celebración de la cultura hispana y Latina de una manera jubilosa e hilarante.

Advertencia sobre su contenido: Esta producción contiene humor atrevido, temas y language para adultos, neblina y luces intermitentes. John Leguizamo es su creador, pero él no forma parte del elenco o se presenta en el escenario en la obra.
