WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The worlds of Latin music and Broadway collide when some of Latin music's biggest stars share the stage with some of Broadway's biggest names for an evening of Latin Rhythms to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Broadway legend Chita Rivera and international film star and star of the current revival of Nine Antonio Banderas will be joined by Broadway luminaries Rosie Perez, Daphne Rubin Vega, Raúl Esparza, Saundra Santiago, Natalie Toro, and Olga Merediz. These stars and many others will be performing their own hits as well as those arranged by Grammy® Award winner Ray Santos. Modeled after a night at the historical Palladium during its heyday in the 1950s, the evening will begin with performances by the evening's stars. Following the show, the tables will be cleared for a night of steamy salsa and mambo dancing to the music of the Ray Santos Orchestra with guest musicians like Dave Valentin (Grammy® Award winner), Jimmy Bosch (Grammy® Award winner), Andy Gonzalez, Jimmy Sabater, Mario Rivera, Angel Rodriguez, Willie Rodriguez (Grammy® Award winner) as part of the featured Orchestra ensemble. The evening is conceived and directed by Richard Amaro, and is directed by Richard Amaro & Ariadne Villareal. All tickets above the general admission price include a reception prior to the show beginning at 6:30 PM, reserved priority seating, and open bar. Doors open at 7PM for all general admission ticket holders and the performance begins at 8PM.
