Tour), Jennifer DiNoia (Wicked), Doreen Montalvo (On Your Feet!, In the Heights), Ramona Keller (Public Theater Hercules, Brooklyn), and Alyssa Fox (Frozen).
Inspired by his upbringing in a strong matriarchy, Lozano conceived A Never-Ending Line as a tribute to the women in his life. The songs explore the unique challenges women face in society today on the journey to find happiness, love, and meaning in their lives. The themes of acceptance, hope, and friendship are universal reminders that no matter who we are or where we come from, our lives are all connected through the shared experience of womanhood.
The show had its world premiere in France at Broadway au Carré, the leading American musical theatre concert and open-mic series in Paris, directed by Lisandro Nesis and music directed by Geraldine Anello. It made its North American debut in Monterrey, Mexico - entirely translated into Spanish - followed by a run Off-Broadway at the Players Theatre in New York City. The Spanish-language album of the song cycle, Una Historia Sin Final, recorded by Mexican musical theatre and telenovela stars is currently available on all digital platforms.
The English album is produced by Jaime Lozano, Jesús Altamira, Demián Cantú, and Victoria Kühne and was recorded at Victoria Records Studios (Monterrey, Mexico); M&I Studios (New York City); and GMTWP Recording Studio (New York City). Orchestrations by Jaime Lozano and Jesús Altamira were performed by Jesús Altamira, José Enrique Guzmán, and Natalia Vilchis.
Jaime Lozano will celebrate the album release with a concert on Sunday, November 24 at 9:30 at The Green Room 42 with an all Latinx line-up and band, including Migguel Anggelo (LatinXoxo), Florencia Cuenca (A Never-Ending Line), Linedy Genao (On Your Feet!), Yvette Gonzalez-Nacer (Hadestown), Javier Ignacio (Sideshow), Amy Lynn (Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular), Mauricio Martínez (On Your Feet!) and Aline Mayagoitia (Forbidden Broadway: The Next Generation).
