Original Off-Broadway Version
A musical celebration of the rich and vibrant history of Latin America. 4 Guys Named Josť And Una Mujer Named Maria was an off-Broadway smash hit produced by Latin singing sensation Enrique Iglesias. Paying tribute to the infectious rhythms of Latin music throughout the ages, this spicy show serves up non-stop laughs, intoxicating melodies and a journey through love, loss, nostalgia for one's homeland, and the sheer joy of song. Four young Latino men have a chance meeting at Burrito World in Omaha and discover they share the same name! Even though their ancestral roots differ (Puerto Rico, Cuba, Mexico and the Dominican Republic), they share a common dream: to stage a show of Latin standards that puts forth a positive image to counteract Latino stereotypes. Enter Maria, a beautiful woman whose vivaciousness entrances the gentlemen, causing them to vie for her attention. And the evening's only just begun!
A wild ride that features some of the most evocative Latin music, 4 Guys Named Josť And Una Mujer Named Maria is a fantastic show for any type of audience, regardless of ethnicity or age. Standards like "La Bamba", "Guantanamera", "I Like It Like That", and "Bang Bang/Oye Como Va" are featured in this hip-swishing score. 4 Guys Named Josť... will fit fantastically on any size stage because of its small technical demands and cast size.
