Playbill, in partnership with Jose Cuervo®, commemorates Mexican Independence Day September 16 with a 7 PM ET stream of the Feinstein’s/54 Below concert Mauricio Martinez: De Mexico to Broadway. Watch the concert here.
The cabaret act, filmed in July 2018, featured special appearances by Tony nominee Orfeh (Pretty Woman, Legally Blonde) and Mariand Torres (Wicked, In Transit). The free 7 PM stream will also include pre- and post-performance interviews with Martinez.
“Growing up I always dreamt of being on a Playbill one day,” said the Mexican stage and screen regular, “so streaming my sold-out Feinstein’s/54 Below debut with my friends from Playbill on such a special day as Mexican Independence Day—which also marks the beginning of Latinx Heritage Month—is not only an honor but a fun way to come full circle. Reliving the story of my journey 'De Mexico to Broadway' wouldn’t be the same without Jose Cuervo®! Their tequila is key in my celebrations!”
Martinez made his Broadway debut as Emilio Estefan in On Your Feet!. His additional credits include Unmasked at Paper Mill Playhouse, Mexican productions of Beauty and the Beast, Saturday Night Fever, The Drowsy Chaperone, and Sweet Charity, and NBC Universo’s El Vato. This special watch party will also serve as a fundraiser for an organization near and dear to Martinez' heart: New York Immigration Coalition.
