A queer, artful mashup of theater, humor, physical movement, and sumptuous song selections – spanning decades of pop hits, his own compositions, and the Spanish boleros – Migguel Anggelo literally peels back an onion layer of personas, strip teasing “Latin lover” clichés, and reckoning with the tragic death of his homophobic and disapproving father. With indelible precision, weaving in and out of the audience, the artist connects past and present while unraveling the stereotypes that would otherwise constrain him. With equal doses of sensitivity and sensationalism, Migguel Anggelo reminds us that our own self-worth is right there in the mirror. LatinXoxo was designed to immerse an audience in a highly personal story.
