Why See Kiss My Aztec!?
From John Leguizamo - DATES TBA
Following the success of his one man show Latin History for Morons, John Leguizamo is back to school us once again. His new comedy musical Kiss My Aztec! journeys back in time to the 16th Century, and follows a ragtag band who lead the Aztecs in resisting the invading Spanish forces. With a score that draws from bolero, hip hop and merengue, Kiss My Aztec! is a lightning sharp satirical musical with plenty to say about Latin culture.
This Berkeley Repertory Theatre production at the Mandell Weiss Theatre is directed by Tony Taccone. Exact dates and the cast are still to be announced, so make sure to check back here for more info!
