“Broadway alum and star of the cabaret and concert circuit, Mauricio Martinez has it all. With dashing good looks and a devastating vocal prowess, Mauricio is a favorite guest artist for many singers looking for a little something extra in their show. Best bud Robbie Rozelle often invites Mauricio to play, and any number of Martinez’s gal pals want to duet with him, as everyone should, because Mauricio brings to the stage with him a passion for storytelling, a voice people dream of harmonizing with, and absolute honesty. In his solo shows Mauricio shares stories about his life as a Mexican making his way in two countries, tales about his journey as a gay man in a continually evolving world, and his experience as a four-time cancer survivor, although words like champion and warrior seem to fit Mauricio better than the word survivor. Always open and pliable, Mauricio is ready for anything when he’s on the stage, but what he is most ready for and dedicated to is the craft of telling stories through music and lyrics, whether originating from The Bergmans (his Spanish “The Way We Were” is becoming rather famous), a mentor (his “Gethsemane” is this writer’s favorite version of all time), or a brother like Jaime Lozano, with whom Martinez works on an ongoing basis. In a perfect world this leading man would be on Broadway all the time, in revivals of plays like Kiss of the Spider Woman and Man of LaMancha, but until that happens the cabaret and concert industry is lucky to have him gracing the stages of nightclubs and symphony halls all over the world.” – BroadwayWorld
“Join us at 54 Below for a stirring evening featuring the songs of the show Present Perfect!

With the buoyant “Dreamers Like Me,” the nostalgic “Mi Perú,” or the yearning of “Subway Stops Away,” you will resonate with the infectious vitality of these searchers coming from as far as Japan or as close as an ultra-Orthodox community in Borough Park.” Click here for in-person and livestream tickets!
“The concert version of this exhilarating 1993 Broadway musical is based on the storied 1969 concept album by The Who.

This electrifying evening of rock and roll includes a cast of Broadway performers and your favorite Michigan actors.” – Flint Repertory Theatre

“There is no telling how Mauricio Martinez manages to achieve what he does when he is on the stage. Was he born with this voice? Is it his training? Does he have natural flair that comes out on the stage, or is it a technique he has perfected through practice? Who knows? And who really cares? All that matters is that Mauricio Martinez does what he does, that he doesn’t change a thing with what he is doing, and that he keeps doing it for as long as he can. While performing his eponymous show last night in Broadway’s Living Room, Mr. Martinez provided one jaw-dropping, eye-popping thrill after another with what is, unquestionably, one of the most beautiful boy voices in the business today (or, frankly, yesterday or tomorrow).” – BroadwayWorld

Fans of Martinez and his cherished chums are making their reservations and counting the days. In the meantime, Broadway World Cabaret is counting to ten: ten videos that show Mauricio at his best, that make us look at the calendar and ask ourselves “Is it March third, yet?!” Click here to watch!
