Florencia Cuenca - “Broadway en Spanglish” to premiere on stage at Joe’s Pub.

Mexican singer and actress Florencia Cuenca brings her acclaimed project “Broadway en Spanglish” to premiere on stage at Joe’s Pub. Florencia takes her musical upbringing and gives her favorite theater numbers a new life. Her project will also feature Mariachi Real de México de Ramon Ponce and new arrangements by Jamie Lozano. Together they take musical theater’s most iconic tunes and create fresh interpretations. 

“As a brown Mexican immigrant with an accent, I am working to create opportunities for people like me to be on stage. As I work towards that dream, I am experimenting with how my mixed musical upbringing could reimagine my favorite musical theatre songs, playing with not only the ‘mezcla’ of musical traditions but how an immigrant woman learning a second language sounds when she speaks,” says Florencia Cuenca.

Jaime Lozano is an accomplished musician, vocal coach, composer, arranger, orchestrator, musical producer, and musical theater director from Monterrey, Mexico who has been considered by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda as the “next big thing” on Broadway.  Jaime was one of the five artists selected for the 2020 Joe’s Pub Working Group. Jaime is currently working on his new album Songs by an Immigrant Vol. 2, part of his project “Jaime Lozano and The Familia”. The Familia is a group of the best Broadway and Off-Broadway performers put together by Lozano to sing about their immigrant experience, songs and stories about finding a new home, learning a new language, dealing with discrimination, trying to fit in, pursuing the American dream, being in love, growing older, and missing their native land.
