Two Acts, Book Musical, Rated PG
Original Off-Broadway Version
A musical celebration of the rich and vibrant history of Latin America.
GUYS NAMED JOSE AND UNA MUJER NAMED MARIA was an off-Broadway smash
hit produced by Latin singing sensation Enrique Iglesias. Paying tribute
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
(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 JOSE AND UNA MUJER NAMED MARIA is a fantastic show for any
type of audience,
regardless of ethnicity or age. Standards like "La Bamba",
"Guantanamer", "I Like It Like That", and "Bang Bang/Oye Como Va" are
featured in this hip
swishing score. 4 GUYS NAMED JOSE… will fit fantastically on any
size stage because of its small technical demands and cast size.
