Flaco Navaja’s

Evolution of a Sonero

The charm, the rhythm, and soul of a Bronx Sonero!

December 13-22, 2018
at PRTT in Manhattan

The first full-length play by poet, actor, singer, and Latinx favorite Flaco Navaja is a fresh epic about growing up, getting inspired, and staying on track. With unabashed love for the people of The Bronx, a gift for crafting memorable characters, and genuine good humor, Navaja and three top-notch musicians —aka The Razor Blades— bring on the charm, the rhythm, and the soul. Paying homage to many great musical icons —from Janis Joplin to Menudo, from The Doors to Héctor Lavoe, from Jimi Hendrix to Rubén Blades— Evolution of A Sonero is as much about Navaja’s creative evolution as it is about the mix that already makes our América great! Strictly limited engagement. Performed in English and Spanish.
