The Ultimate Queen Celebration is an explosive, attention-grabbing tribute featuring ferocious performances of the most iconic rock anthems of all time—“We Will Rock You,” “Radio Gaga,” “We Are The Champions,” “Fat Bottomed Girls,” “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Somebody to Love,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” and many more. Heading the smashing 5-piece band is lead singer Marc Martel, the vocalist who gave the Oscar-winning smash-hit movie, Bohemian Rhapsody, its electricity, its authenticity, and its bite. “Martel’s ability to sound like Freddie Mercury remains staggering!” raves USA Today.

A sold-out run at The Public Theater. A record-breaking engagement at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. Endless critical and audience acclaim direct from Broadway. Chalk it all up to the mad genius of Tony and Emmy Award winner John Leguizamo, standing at the head of the class in his one-man show, Latin History for Morons.
When his son gets a school assignment on heroes, John seizes the chance to teach him all about the great figures of the Latino world. But once he sets out on his irreverent crash course across three continents and 3000 years of history—from conquistadores to cumbia, Montezuma to Menudo, and taking on the characters in all of it—he uncovers provocative truths that shock even him.
