Written, directed, and performed by Josean Ortiz, this musical monologue pays tribute to the legend of the openly gay Cuban singer, pianist, and composer, Ignacio Villa Fernández; better known as “Bola de Nieve” or “Snowball.” Touring around the world in the mid to late 20th century, Fernández made a name for himself with his unique singing style, multilingual performances, and unmistakable looks. In this award-winning tribute, Ortiz combines projected visuals, interactive dialogue, and testimonials from the musician’s family and friends to bring Snowball to life once again.

A production by Amigos del Corralón Inc. in partnership with The Theater Offensive.
