The great Cugat
… of the little chihuahuas.
Xavier Cugat was a universal Catalan who made a career, money and fame in Hollywood.
He acted in Al Capone’s casino, discovered Rita Hayworth, acted in Chaplin’s silent cinema and created a Mexican food chain …
And he got married 5 times! Always with famous and provocative artists who were part of his musical shows.
This small format show is a journey through the music of Xavier Cugat based on the songs that his ex-wives made famous.
A musical biography in humor.
