The Nov. 20 performance — where Latin music and Broadway will unite — will be held at B.B. King Blues Club and Grill. Tony Award winner Chita Rivera, Les Miserables' Daphne Rubin-Vega, stage and screen star Rosie Perez and Company's Raúl Esparza are all scheduled to perform accompanied by a live Latin band. Grammy Award winner Ray Santos will orchestrate and conduct the evening's music. Richard Amaro will direct and choreograph the performance, which will "re-create a night at the historical Palladium during its heyday in the 1950s."
