Jaime Lozano Returns to Lincoln Center with All Star Cast to perform ¡Viva La Vida!
Heralded by no less than Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda as “the next big thing,” the Mexican composer-director Jaime Lozano returns to the David Rubenstein Atrium for special peek into the upcoming Broadway musical Frida, The Musical, about the life of famed artist Frida Kahlo. Lozano will be joined on stage by a cast of Latinx/e musicians and singers on this special night.
On September 7th at 8:00pm, audiences are invited to enjoy a preview of select songs that fuse Mexican folk music with a lush, contemporary sound. With music by Jaime Lozano and lyrics by playwright Neena Beber, the Broadway-bound show—currently scheduled for 2024—portrays the artist in a new light.
Based on the book Intimate Frida by Isolda Pinedo Kahlo, Frida, The Musical celebrates the very real person behind her iconographic imagery, an original disruptor and influencer who redefined beauty, sexuality, and humanity in her time, and continues to inspire generations of new fans. The musical is produced by Valentina Berger, the Kahlo Family, BTF Media & Rick Miramontez.
The show boasts an all-Mexican cast of Broadway artists, listed alphabetically below:
Krystina Alabado (Mean Girls, Better Nate Than Ever)
Danny Bolero (In The Heights, Plaza Suite)
Florencia Cuenca (A Never-Ending Line, Children of Salt)
Eden Espinosa (Rent, Wicked)
Robi Hager (Spring Awakening, Doctor Zhivago)
Mauricio Martínez (On Your Feet!)
Sylvia Sáenz (100 Days To Fall In Love, Betty en NY)
Mario Tadeo (Miss Saigon Ntal. Tour)
