Ricky Martin will be shaking his bon-bon and bringing Ernesto "Che" Guevara to life at the upcoming Tony Awards on Sunday June 10.
The Great White Way ceremony will be hosted once again by “How I Met Your Mother” actor Neil Patrick Harris.
The Tony Awards is showcasing a slew of works on Broadway this season, with performances not only from Martin but also Rául Esparza, Audra McDonald, Matthew Broderick and the casts of "Godspell" and "Ghost The Musical," among many others.
Martin made a splash on Broadway alongside “Evita” co-stars Elena Rogers, who plays Eva Perón, and Michael Cerveris, who plays Juan Perón.
To get in character, Martin has been sporting a moustache. He says playing the controversial revolutionary icon has taken him to "another place mentally, physically, and spiritually.”
Martin said the same thing is happening in "Evita" as in his 1995 Broadway debut in "Les Miserables."
"I've felt emotions onstage that I never felt before, it has strengthened me as a person and as an artist," Martin said in a press conference in March, as Fox News Latino previously reported.
“It's been a great journey. I'm here to grow and to learn. It's been a fascinating trip," he added.
Producers Monday revealed a list of performances that include all four new musicals.
"Newsies," ''Nice Work If You Can Get It," ''Once" and the now-closed "Leap of Faith" — but also the revivals "Follies," ''Evita," ''The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess" and "Jesus Christ Superstar."
“Leap of Faith” starting Cuban-American Broadway star Rául Esparza and Brooke Shields began its pre-Broadway run in Los Angeles on October 1st of 2010.
The story, written by eight-time Oscar winner Allen Menkin, is based on Steve Martin’s 1992 movie. The Hollywood Reporter wrote that “Raúl Esparza gives a brilliantly acted and sung performance that allows the four-time Tony nominee to exhibit the full range of his considerable talent."
Besides “Leap of Faith,” the Tony’s will have performances from several plays, including "End of the Rainbow," ''Peter and the Starcatcher" and "One Man, Two Guvnors."
In big awards categories, Latinos were largely shut out of the nominations.
