Coco's Barrio: live radio theater

In 2016 an early idea I'd explored with Al Justiniano and Silvia Ponteza became a much better reality with the first performance of Coco's Latinidad. It's a bi-lingual mix of radio drama, live music, satirical sponsor ads, and interviews with the local artists who perform on the show. And it's all performed live on stage and simulcast on local low-power FM radio! I've engineered the live recordings, produced the radio simulcasts, and even have become the show's Foley artist -- producing sound effects live on stage alongside the actors. The show is now known as Coco's Barrio and has produced new original performances several times a year since its debut.
