Friday Night Live! Migguel Anggelo - So Close: Love & Hate


Through a rich song cycle including an array of brand new compositions punctuated by Latin classics, American standards, Broadway, opera, and Bjork, the Brooklyn based, Venezuelan born dynamo Migguel Anggelo returns to the DIA. Anggelo pours his lush voice and enormous soul into So Close: Love & Hate, an intimate new show addressing divisiveness, humanity and hope, co-presented by Culture Lab Detroit.

“Darkness can never wholly exist when there is light in the world.” - Migguel Anggelo 

For one performance only at 7:30PM

"Migguel Anggelo exhilaratingly recalls the showmanship of Desi Arnaz and the performance art of Klaus Nomi" - THEATER SCENE

“Joe’s Pub may have to raise the ceiling to contain this larger than life personality.”  - THE BROADWAY BLOG

Anggelo is a force to be reckoned with. His energy is so contagious that you can’t help but become engrossed by his intensity, piercing eyes and poetry, and then two seconds later, he has you in stitches with his animated facial expressions and quirky sense of humor.”  - LATIN POST

“Migguel Anggelo thrills audiences with his bold voice, winning smile, swiveling hips, and radiant charm.”  - BROADWAY WORLD


With musical direction by Jaime Lozano, So Close: Love & Hate is directed and developed by Obie Award winner David Drake.
