'Kiss My Aztec' a Mesoamerican Story for the Modern Day

Written by John Leguizamo and Tony Taccone, this world-premiere musical has more than a whiff of Hamilton for Latin America: a history lesson of resistance in Spanish-occupied Mesoamerica told through salsa, hip-hop, merengue and funk, with a blend of 16th-century dialect and modern slang. Taccone and Leguizamo previously worked together on Latin History for Morons, but this one's special: it's Taccone's final production as artistic director after 33 years at Berkeley Rep.

Listen to Taccone discuss the play on KQED's Forum here.
