¡HISPANIC ATTACK!, the hilarious smash hit of Hayes Theatre Co’s 2016 Cabaret Season that played to sell-out audiences and rapturous standing ovations, will return to the Hayes for two return dates in July, as well as making its Melbourne debut at Chapel Off Chapel in September. Starring Ryan Gonzalez (Strictly Ballroom, Violet, Kinky Boots), ¡HISPANIC ATTACK! is an outrageous night out, bursting with laughs, lust, and Latin music. Audiences were screaming for more and they’ve well and truly been heard!

Iconic Spanish singer, songwriter, dancer, telenovela star, and three-time Eurovision Song Contest participant Ryan Gonzalez (his mama wanted to give him an exotic first name) is a superstar all over the Latin world. Idol, heart-throb, and seven-time Latin Grammy nominee, his life is a blur of parties, ladies, and sold-out arena tours. In 2016, he finally brings his legendary Hispanic passion down under, with the aim of single-handedly helping Latin music overtake cricket, gambling and casual racism as Australia’s most popular art form.

After his planned arena tour was abruptly cancelled as a result of a mysterious sales-related complication, Gonzalez has agreed to make a handful of extra-special up-close-and-personal cabaret appearances in Sydney and Melbourne instead.

¡HISPANIC ATTACK! features music from the world’s most popular Latin artists including Gloria Estefan, Enrique Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez, Lou Bega, and even Gonzalez’s former ‘Menudo’ bandmate and now sworn enemy Ricky Martin. The show is written and directed by Richard Carroll (Everybody Loves LucySide Show), with choreography by Amy Campbell (Violet, Spring Awakening).

The real Ryan Gonzalez has appeared in musicals around Australia including national tours of Legally Blonde, King Kong, Strictly Ballroom, Violet and the upcoming Kinky Boots. This show marks the debut of the outrageous comedy character that shares his name.
