Migguel Anggelo

Migguel Anggelo is a Brooklyn and Miami-based, transdisciplinary artist who uses music, physical theater, dance, text, and costume to create unique and highly personal representations of his queer, immigrant, and Venezuelan identities.

A boldly original artist, he speaks to today’s multi-lingual, multi-generational audiences by passionately expressing the same longings for safety, freedom, love, joy and belonging that we all share, regardless of sexual orientation and country of origin. Ultimately, he waves a plethora of art forms together to craft authenticity and heart. “with the showmanship of Desi Arnaz and the performance art of Klaus Nomi” (Theater Scene).

“[Migguel] was born to be on stage and delivers a performance with incredible honesty, humor, and flair. Along with his magnificent band, Anggelo forces his audiences to think and feel — and ultimately connects with them in a way that leaves an indelible and remarkable imprint.” – The Broadway Blog


Migguel Anggelo has been touring his outrageously queer and gender-bending concert experience, LatinXoxo, created with J. Julian Christopher and Jaime Lozano, and directed by Adrian Alexander Alea.

LatinXoxo is Migguel Anggelo’s nonconforming and self-accepting rallying cry: a break from “Latin Lover” clichés and his own Venezuelan father’s gendered expectations. With indelible precision, weaving in and out of the audience, the artist connects past and present while unraveling the stereotypes that would otherwise constrain him. The musical repertoire spans decades of pop hits, his own original compositions, and the Spanish boleros that defined his youth. With equal doses of sensitivity and sensationalism, “turning on a dime from anger to devastating tenderness” (Broadway World), Migguel Anggelo reminds us that our greatest love is right there in the mirror.

With musical direction by Jaime Lozano and by C. Julian Jiménez, LatinXoxo is conceived by Migguel Anggelo and directed by Adrian Alexander Alea. The production will headline The Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival and tour in arts centers nationwide thereafter.

English with an Accent

Concurrently, the artist is rigorously developing and touring English with an Accent, a hybrid, dance-theater production, narrated in a storytelling song-cycle backed by a company of ten dancers. An immigration tale told through the eyes of a newly arrived caterpillar in New York City fleeing the crime and noxious dictatorship of Venezuela, the work contains original music and lyrics by Migguel Anggelo and Jaime Lozano and is directed, choreographed, and developed by internationally acclaimed, Avihai Haham. The production made its premiere at the GALA Hispanic Theatre in Washington D.C. this past April, co-presented by Washington Performing Arts with additional tour dates to be announced.
