Paquito Forever is the one-man cabaret by Joan Vázquez, returning to Crazy Coqs after a successful one-night preview last Spring.

The show is an intimate and personal account of the real-life adventures of Paquito (Paco) Alonso, a gay Catalonian growing up wanting to be a dancer in Franco's postwar Spain but grafting his way out to reach the bright lights of Broadway and beyond.

Vázquez, accompanied on the piano by writer Gerard Alonso, presents an evening of stand-up comedy, flamenco, blues, jazz, dancing and a tiny little bit of cross-dressing.

Vázquez returns after his London debut at Crazy Coqs in 2016 with Something's Coming: a Sondheim Tribute and his acclaimed New York City debut at Feinstein's/54 Below.
