Capital Fringe 2014 Preview: ‘Martin, Love, Sex & Rhythm’ by Alvaro Maldonado

Martin, Love, Sex & Rhythm is a sexy rock/pop musical comprised of an all-male cast that confronts contemporary gay issues against the backdrop of current and classic Top 40 songs. The production features dazzling and dynamic dance choreography ranging from salsa to ballet and a gripping and fearless script.


Imagine HBO’s Looking meets Rock of Ages. The energetic and multi-talented cast of dancers, singers, and actors perform accompanied by a live band.

Martin, Love, Sex & Rhythm recognizes that gay men living in these rapidly changing times have stories that the rest of the gay community needs to hear. There is a need for a discussion about issues such as: young men being cyber bullied when they dare to come out as HIV-positive; HIV-negative men having unprotected sex with those who tell them they are negative while shunning the few brave men who admit that they are positive; the invention of TRUVADA (a prevention drug to reduce the risk of HIV infection in adults who are at high risk); recreational sex drugs, and open-relationships.

Martin, Love, Sex & Rhythm hopes to be a catalyst for starting a dialogue about the issues, feelings, fears and struggles that many in the gay community deal with today.

More information about the musical can be found on the Ballet Teatro Internacional (BTI) website.

Featuring: Alvaro Maldonado, Ryan Alan Jones, Victor Maldonado, Zac Norton, and Cory Claussen and Theatre Director Freddy Mancilla, nominated for a Latin ACE Award for Most Outstanding New Director in New York City.
