Cliched, Disappointing, Great singing

See it if You want to see an energetic, young Latino cast with good voices perform Latin & hip hop music.

Don't see it if You object to a clichéd story that would greatly benefit from cutting at least 30 minutes from its 2 hour 40 minutes running time.

Amateurish, Poor sound, Bad singing

See it if you are highly interested in Spanish language and culture. You enjoy Latin American music and rhythms.

Don't see it if The show is okayish but the musical execution is terrible. Performed by actors not singers. Completely out of tune and painful for the ears.

Diandra Reviews it All

"Unabashedly about and for latin culture: no fusions...One of the most heartwarming and fun musicals, I have seen recently...Fresh and infectiously rhythmic; keeping you dancing in your seat... A show that makes you want to take Latin Dance classes...Vico C's music is phenomenal. He truly captured the urban nature of modern Latin Music, but throws homage to its classic roots...A show about believing in yourself, even when your family or the world cannot see your vision."
