Two-time Tony Award nominee Robin De Jesus brought his solo show Crush to Crushed — an evening of pop, rock, Spanish, soul and Broadway music centered around the word love — to Orlando last month. He shares some exclusive photos from his trip.

Directed by Yvette Kojic with musical direction by Michael J. Moritz Jr., concerts were offered at 8 PM at The Mezz, above downtown nightclub The Abbey. Crush to Crushed was previously seen at 54 Below in November 2013.
Here's how the evening was billed: "Love's amazing, love sucks, we all want it and rarely do we feel like we get enough. Two time Tony Award nominee Robin De Jesus (In the Heights, La Cage aux Folles, Rent) discusses crushes, loves, break ups, hook ups, sex ed and some of his mother's best kept secrets about lust. Be prepared for lots of tangents, non-sequiturs, Adderall and of course laughs."
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
