The ALLIANCE THEATRE's production of ZORRO, a new musical, is set to the flamenco sound of The Gipsy Kings. Get a sneak peek and hear what the show's star, Broadway vet Adam Jacobs, had to say about the show below!
ZORRO tells the story of Diego de la Vega, the man behind the masked outlaw fighting to restore order in Spanish colonial California. When Diego returns home from Spain, he discovers his father is dead and his brother is running Los Angeles... badly. Diego must resort to extreme measures to free the people from his brother's oppressive rule without being discovered. The theatrical origin story of this legendary hero is told through the lens of flamenco culture.
ZORRO's creative team is led by Tony nominated Director Christopher Renshaw (Taboo; The King and I), who has been involved with the production since its inception in 2001. "The production is full of special effects, sword fighting, stunts and magic," said Renshaw. "And all these elements are steeped in the passionate, earthy and sexually charged world of flamenco."
This musical production of ZORRO consists of more than twenty songs by flamenco-rumba icons The Gipsy Kings and Tony Award winner John Cameron (LES MISERABLES), including Gipsy Kings favorites "Bamboleo" and "Djobi Djobi," as well as new musical numbers created for the show. Music Director Fred Lassen (South Pacific) will lead an ensemble of live musicians who will accompany the production each performance.
Leading the cast in the role of Diego de la Vega/Zorro is Broadway veteran Adam Jacobs (The Lion King; LES MISERABLES). Also joining the cast in principle roles - Nicholas Carrière (The Lion King National Tour) as Ramon; Natascia Diaz (Man of La Mancha; Carousel) as Inez; Andrea Goss (Once; Rent) as Luisa; Benjamin Harding as Young Ramon; Mark Kincaid as Alejandro de la Vega; Royce Mann as Young Diego; Eliseo N. Roman (Leap of Faith; In the Heights) as Sergeant Garcia; and Mary Stewart Sullivan as Young Luisa.
