Roberto Araujo In DO YOU DREAM IN SPANISH? Returns To The Green Room 42 On November 15
THE GREEN ROOM 42 - the new intimate concert venue dubbed Broadway's "off-night hotspot" by The New York Times - will present the return of Roberto Araujo in Do You Dream In Spanish? on Friday, November 15 at 9:30 PM.
The performance, which won Araujo the "Outstanding Featured Performer" award at 2017's Fresh Fruit Festival following the show's world premiere, takes audiences through Araujo's incredible life, from growing up in Mexico City to immigrating to New York on his own and forging a multi-disciplined and international career in the arts against seemingly insurmountable odds. In this third iteration of the show, Araujo tells new stories and brings an unapologetic honesty to his narrative.
This multi-media experience uses Araujo's award-winning photography, paired with classic songs by Frank Loesser, Steven Lutvak, and George Gershwin and original music by Araujo and Michael Perrie, Jr. to tell a dynamic and timely story filled with heart and humor, all while exploring ideas of identity, immigration, love, family, racism, acceptance, and belonging. Do You Dream In Spanish? features a seven-piece band under the musical direction of Joshua Stephen Kartes.
Roberto started his career in his hometown of Mexico City working on shows such as Rent, Guys & Dolls, Cats and touring extensively with the Disney Special Events Group in Latin America.
