Will the hard-won bonds of friendship, community, and family in the Five Points prevail or be severed forever? More info

Directed by Tony Taccone

This fresh, irreverent, and outrageous satirical musical comedy could only spring forth from the insanely hilarious and culturally savvy mind of John Leguizamo (who seriously schooled Berkeley Rep audiences with Latin History for Morons). With an energetic musical fusion of bolero, hip hop, merengue, and rap, and an uproarious mashup of 16th-century and modern slang, Kiss My Aztec! celebrates, elevates, and commemorates Latinx culture.
