A revue with a difference… A revue that tells a story… A show that covers one night and forty years… A show that takes place today and also in 200 B.C., 1853, 1882, 1900, the 1950s, the 1970s, the 1980s and tonight.
A show that takes place not only in New York but also Greece and Rome and London and Paris and Milan and Sweden…
A show that takes place in a Manhattan penthouse, but includes the stage of an abandoned theatre, an estate in Sweden, an island outside of Paris, a street off the Roman Forum, the woods of a fairy tale and a mythical town in the Southwest… All performed by only five people thrown together at a party.
Sondheim himself has devised this unique and inventive musical entertainment from his own work, which includes songs from every score he has ever written as well as some never heard before. His delight in devising unusual and entertaining crossword puzzles has here found an unexpected outlet in the way he has put together this extraordinary collection of brilliant songs into what has been described as the funniest show Sondheim never wrote… but now he has.

Four young Latino men have a chance meeting at Burrito World in Omaha and discover they share the same name! Even though their ancestral roots are different (one is from Puerto Rico, one is from Cuba, one is from Mexico and one is from the Dominican Republic), not only do they share a common name, they share a common dream: to stage a show of Latin standards that puts forth a positive image to counteract Latino stereotypes. Enter Maria, a beautiful woman who provides a romantic interest as the gentlemen vie for her attentions.
Performed in Spanish and English, 4 Guys Named José… And Una Mujer Named Maria features some of the most evocative Latin music ever written (including such standards as La Bamba, Guantanamera, I Like It Like That and Bésame Mucho) sung in four- and five-part harmony. Conceived by David Coffman and Dolores Prida with a wise and funny book by Ms. Prida, 4 Guys Named José… And Una Mujer Named Maria is brimming with the zest of life intrinsic to the Latino culture.
