News October 11, 2018 David Kiley

DETROIT, Mich.–Presented by the DIA and Culture Lab Detroit,  So Close: Love & Hate  is a rich song-cycle addressing divisiveness, humanity and hope.  In this fun and intimate night of music, dance, and conversation, Migguel Anggelo shines a light on the divisiveness running rampant through our country today, and offers a bit of levity and hope.  

Migguel is very excited to return to DIA after a successful run of  So Close: Love & Hate at NYC’s legendary Joe’s Pub Theater; playing to sold-out audiences. Anggelo’s performances have been featured on Huffington Post and Time Out NY, to name a few, and touted as one of New York Magazine’s “25 Things to see, hear, watch, and read.” 

The show includes original music as well as Latin classics, American standards, Broadway, opera, and even Bjork. It was developed by David Drake [The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me] and is under the musical direction of Jaime Lozano (who was named the “next big thing” by Lin Manuel-Miranda). 

In addition to this show, Migguel has an original composition called “Inmigrantes”, which is a powerful anthem written to unite all people regardless of ethnicities and nationalities.  It was born through Anggelo’s experience as a Latinx immigrant.  Because of its message and recent headlines about the current administration’s stance on immigration, the song has been featured on NBC’s Visiones, AP Latino and El Diarioin the last month.
