MAURICIO MARTÍNEZ is a Mexican Emmy Winning actor and recording artist whose body of work spans film, television, albums, concerts, plays and musicals. He made his Broadway debut playing Cuban hit maker & producer ‘Emilio Estefan’ in ON YOUR FEET! The Story Of Emilio & Gloria Estefan on Broadway and its first National Tour, playing at such theaters as The Kennedy Center in Washington DC and The Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles.
From the Hollywood Reporter: “Mexico’s Martinez makes a stunning North American debut as Emilio. With credits like Beauty and the Beast, The Drowsy Chaperone and A View From the Bridge in his home country, he brings charismatic kookiness, warmth and romance to the role, and lends tender pathos to his solo, “Don’t Wanna Lose You.””

Other television credits include multiple Telenovela’s in Univision and Telemundo like SEÑORA ACERO, CLAP: EL LUGAR DE TUS SUEÑOS, PORQUE EL AMOR MANDA and LA MUJER DEL VENDAVAL as well as the 40TH ANNUAL KENNEDY HONORS on CBS, THE 2019 GERSHWIN PRIZE (performing next to artists like Patti Labelle, Cindy Lauper, Rita Moreno, Andy García and Gloria Estefan), and ONE VOICE: THE SONGS WE SHARE with the American Pops Orchestra on PBS.
