The first full-length solo show by acclaimed artist Flaco Navaja. With unabashed love for The Bronx, a gift for crafting memorable characters, and genuine good humor, Navaja and five top-notch musicians —aka The Razor Blades— bring on the charm, the rhythm, and the soul essential to a Bronx Sonero. Paying homage to many great musical icons —from Janis Joplin to Menudo, from The Doors to Héctor Lavoe, from Jimi Hendrix to Rubén Blades— the play is as much about Navaja’s creative evolution as it is about the wild mix that gives life to a rhyme, a people and a culture.

Evolution of a Sonero, el primer solo-show escrito e interpretado por el poeta latino, actor y cantante Flaco Navaja, es un viaje de inspiración y crecimiento personal. Con un amor descarado por el Bronx, un don para crear personajes memorables y humor, Navaja y cinco músicos, conocidos como The Razor Blades, aportan el encanto, el ritmo y el alma vital de un Bronx Sonero. Rindiendo homenaje a íconos musicales, desde Janis Joplin a Menudo, de The Doors a Héctor Lavoe, de Jimi Hendrix a Rubén Blades, la producción retrata tanto la evolución creativa de Navaja como de la mezcla salvaje que da vida a una rima, un pueblo y una cultura.

Performed in English and Spanish.
