Leslie Kritzer, currently starring in Something Rotten! at the St. James Theatre, plays Riff-Tina, billed as “the Jewish-Puerto Rican pop sensation,” in a new video to support Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
Entitled “Taco Truck Invasion,” the music video was directed by Randy Blair with choreography by MiMi Scardulla. Andrew Keenan-Bolger serves as director of photography. The cast also features Rory O'Malley, Josh Lamon, Larry Owens, MiMi Scardulla, MJ Rodriguez, and Miriam Rodriguez. It was produced by Jordan Rathus with Kritzer and Greg Brunswick serving as executive producers.
“After discovering that her retired Latin mother is voting for Trump based on anti-Mexican comments from the leader of Latinos for Trump Marco Gutierrez, Riff and her girls take to the streets!” according to press notes. “This throwback dance jam will not only convince voters that a taco truck on every corner is a f#$*ing delicious idea, but that diversity should be encouraged and not erased, since it creates the tastiest ingredients in the mouthwatering fusion taco we like to call ’America.’”

The song, which will be available as a single on iTunes and other digital platforms beginning October 21, was written by Kritzer with additional lyrics by Blair. It was produced by Ron Robinson, Jr. with additional arrangements by James Sampliner.
