AST is proud to present "A Mexican Affair"
Live from New York City, this one night only event is a cabaret with the influence of the Jazz & Latin rhythms of West Side Story and the passion of Shakespeare's fantastic loves. The Great American Songbook never sounded so spicy!

A Mexican Affair celebrates the relationship between Mexico and the United States and the beautiful cultural influence between both countries. An evening of delicious music, candid stories, and spicy romance featuring popular Jazz tunes written by Mexican and American composers. The thrilling fusion of rhythms and musical influences invites you to take an adventure filled with passion, heartbreak, and a little dirty mambo!
