From the prolific musical mind of Jaime Lozano comes Broadway en Spanglish, a Broadstream original series that rearranges and reimagines iconic show tunes using, you guessed it, Spanglish. Accompanied by a first-class mariachi band, Florencia Cuenca makes music magic with Lozano's smart arrangements, and delivers powerful, authentic, fresh interpretations of some of musical theater's finest.

"As a brown Mexican immigrant with an accent, I don't yet have many options to be a leading lady on a Broadway show, so I am working to create opportunities for people like me to be on stage," said Florencia Cuenca. "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."
