Joe's Pub Welcomes Back Performer Migguel Anggelo For An Exploration Of Latin And Queer Identity

On Thursday, January 31st and Friday, February 1st, Latinx musician, performer and activist, Migguel Anggelo, is premiering his new one-man show, LatinXoxo - An Unrequited Serenata at Joe's Pub.

Inspired by the boleros of his Latin American youth,?Anggelo embarks?on a transformative journey of romance guided by reimagined Latin icons of love. Blending classic Spanish love songs, their contemporary pop counterparts, and original?compositions, LatinXoxo - An Unrequited Serenata offers an?emotional?exploration of Latin and Queer identity.

In addition to his work illuminating the LGBT experience, Migguel is inspired by his experience as a Latinx immigrant, as evident in his original compositions such as "Inmigrantes", a powerful anthem written to unite all people regardless of ethnicities and nationalities.?seeks to shatter those notions and break the binary, reminding us that we can be many sides at once -- both the virgin and the lover, the feminine and the masculine, the seducer and the seduced -- and reexamining love songs through a queer lens.?

Hailed by critics as "a dynamic treat" and a mixture of "Mambo meets Andy Kaufman, spiced with a pinch of Michael Bublé," Anggelo has taken cues from Lin Manuel Miranda, John Leguizamo and Cesar Alvarez, using his performances as a vehicle to explore issues of heritage, identity, tradition, language and more as a first-generation Latino immigrant.
