Once more into the fray! After choreographing “Manuel vs. The Statue of Liberty” at NYMF in 2015, I am THRILLED to collaborate with Noemi de la Puente and David Davila on their new musical Promésa.
Promésa is a mariachi musical across four centuries that takes you on a pilgrimage to the shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. Yaretzi, an Aztec woman after the fall of Tenochtitlan, Leonora, a soldadera in the Mexican Revolution, and Milagros, a doctor at the height of the AIDS epidemic, all undertake this difficult pilgrimage to the sacred site at El Tepeyac in hopes of a miracle. Not all of them will get the miracle they want, but perhaps faith itself is the miracle they need.
With Musical Theatre Factory’s 4x15 program, we have 5 hours of rehearsal and an incredible cast of LatinX actors to make this original mariachi musical…magical. I can’t wait!
