Kick off the Cabaret season at the newly renovated Greer Cabaret Theater; drink, dine, and be swept away in this intimate, cabaret-style concert.
Martínez is a Mexican Emmy-winning actor and recording artist whose body of work spans film, television, albums, concerts, plays, and musicals. He made his Broadway debut playing Cuban hitmaker and producer ‘Emilio Estefan’ in On Your Feet! The Story of Emilio & Gloria Estefan on Broadway and its first National Tour, playing at such theaters as The Kennedy Center in Washington DC and The Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles.
“Mexico’s Martínez makes a stunning North American debut as Emilio. With credits like Beauty and the Beast, The Drowsy Chaperone, and A View from the Bridge in his home country, he brings charismatic kookiness, warmth, and romance to the role. He lends tender pathos to his solo, “Don’t Wanna Lose You.” – The Hollywood Reporter.
A household name in Mexico and Latin America, Mauricio can also be seen in two seasons of NBC Universo’s original Emmy-winning TV series “El Vato” on Netflix. Other television credits include multiple Telenovelas in Univision and Telemundo like Señora Acero, Clap: El Lugar De Tus Sueños, Porque El Amor Manda and La Mujer Del Vendaval as well as the 40th Annual Kennedy Center Honors on CBS television, “The 2019 Gershwin Prize” (performing next to artists like Patti Labelle, Cindy Lauper, Rita Moreno, Andy García and Gloria Estefan) and “One Voice: The Songs We Share” with the American Pops Orchestra on PBS television.
Martinez is also an established recording artist who has released two Latin pop albums, available on all music streaming services. Up next is the recording of his one-man show, 5’11”, BASED IN NYC, which will be recorded live from 54 Below this coming fall. Mauricio is also featured in the album Songs by an Immigrant by Mexican composer Jaime Lozano as well as in the premiere recording of Present Perfect, also with music by Lozano, a frequent collaborator.
Martinez’s regional theater credits include the world premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical memoir Unmasked at Paper Mill Playhouse, Evita at Kansas City Repertory Theater, and Rodgers & Hammerstein’s A Grand Night For Singing at the Goodspeed Opera House.
