LatinXoxo

Tickets and more information.

Migguel Anggelo is a Venezuelan-born and Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist whose creative work explores the intersections of queer, Latino and immigration identities. As a musician, Anggelo has released two full-length albums: Dónde Estara Matisse and La Casa Azul. As a theater artist, he has developed residency works for MASS MoCA, Brooklyn’s BRIC, and the downtown cabaret Joe’s Pub, where he and his creative partners first staged LatinXoxo.

An outrageous and gender-busting solo musical theater performance that makes full use of his remarkable vocal range, nuanced acting and muscular grace, LatinXoxo—conceived by Anggelo with musical direction by Jaime Lozano, book by C. Julian Jiménez and directed and developed by SRĐA—is by turns hilarious, risqué and deeply moving. The work’s flamboyant costumes and ostentatious characters frame Anggelo’s reckoning with cultural preconceptions of machismo and identity, presented through intimately personal renditions of the Spanish boleros and pop music of his youth.
