SPOTLIGHT ON AKA

july 2016

Mateo Moreno, Broadway Ambassador Manager

Here at AKA, Mateo works on Broadway’s front line, guiding our Broadway Ambassador team. In his free time, he’s quite the prolific playwright, singer and actor! His first play, written in 2012, was the highly choreographed fight show, Happily After Tonight, at The Barrow Group where it was nominated for a New York Innovative Theatre Award. His second play, Bohemian Valentine, was selected as part of the acclaimed New York International Fringe Festival in 2014. Paper Airplanes, his latest play about a father reconnecting with his daughter, was just performed in front of a sold-out audience at Symphony Space.

Mateo is currently part of a yearlong playwriting residency with Athena Theatre where he is workshopping his full-length play Fairground Attraction. And if he wasn’t busy enough writing, Mateo also acted Off Broadway this past spring in City of Glass, and is now in rehearsals for Hamlet or I Shall Mourn the Rivers. In August, he will be singing in Lincoln Center’s “Mostly Mozart” festival.

Mateo jokes, “Sometimes I sleep. But not often.” We can see why, but we thank him for bringing his amazing energy and creative talents to all his work at AKA. Find out more about Mateo by visiting his websites Mateo-Moreno.com and www.BohemianValentine.com.
