David Gonzalez is the proud recipient of the 2011 International Performing Arts for Youth "Lifetime Achievement Award for Sustained Excellence". In 2010 Mr. Gonzalez was named a Joseph Campbell Foundation Fellow. He was nominated for a 2006 Drama Desk Award for "Unique Theatrical Experience" for his production of The Frog Bride at Broadway's New Victory Theater. He has created numerous productions, including the critically acclaimed ¡Sofrito! with The Latin Legends Band, and MytholoJazz, both of which enjoyed sold-out runs at New Victory Theater. The Man of the House was commissioned and produced just the Kennedy Center in 2013. Join Gonzalez for Aesop Bops! Fast-paced, funny, and packed with audience participation, this feast of funky, physical storytelling leaves young audiences feeling like they had just performed the show too!
