From Netflix and Sony Pictures Animation comes Vivo, an animated musical adventure featuring all-new songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda. Vivo follows a one-of-kind kinkajou (aka a rainforest “honey bear,” voiced by Miranda), who spends his days playing music to the crowds in a lively square with his beloved owner Andrés (Buena Vista Social Club’s Juan de Marcos). Though they may not speak the same language, Vivo and Andrés are the perfect duo through their common love of music. But when tragedy strikes shortly after Andrés receives a letter from the famous Marta Sandoval (three-time Grammy-winning Latin pop legend Gloria Estefan), inviting her old partner to her farewell concert with the hope of reconnecting, it’s up to Vivo to deliver a message that Andrés never could: A love letter to Marta, written long ago, in the form of a song. Yet in order to get to Marta, who lives a world apart, Vivo will need the help of Gabi (newcomer Ynairaly Simo) – an energetic tween who bounces to the beat of her own offbeat drum to fulfill his owner’s wishes. Vivo is an exhilarating story about gathering your courage, finding family in unlikely friends, and the belief that music can open you to new worlds. PG | 103mins
Alex Lacamoire is an award-winning music director, arranger, and composer. He is best known for his work on Broadway’s critically-acclaimed shows Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, and In The Heights. Altogether, he has won three Tonys for Best Orchestrations, three Grammys for Best Musical Theater Album, an additional Grammy for producing The Greatest Showman soundtrack, and most recently, an Emmy for Outstanding Music Direction for his work in FX’s mini-series Fosse/Verdon. He was also the recipient of a first-of-its-kind Kennedy Center Honors for his contribution to Hamilton. Lacamoire and the Hamilton creative team were honored as the “trailblazing creators of a transformative work that defies category” — a distinction never before awarded by the arts institution. Lacamoire also served as the Executive Music Producer for Warner Brothers’ film In The Heights. He is also the Music Supervisor on Sting and Kate Prince’s world premiering show Message In A Bottle and is the Music Supervisor and Orchestrator on Ross Golan’s new musical The Wrong Man.
As of June 2020, Alex’s work in Hamilton can now be heard in the filmed version of the musical, available worldwide on Disney+. He recently served as the Executive Music Producer for Netflix’s Tick, Tick…Boom! Lacamoire’s other credits include Broadway’s Wicked, Bring It On, High Fidelity, Annie (2011 Broadway revival), 9 to 5 (Drama Desk-nominated for Outstanding Orchestrations and Grammy-nominated for Best Musical Theater Album), Legally Blonde, Bat Boy, Incredibles 2, Sesame Street (Emmy-nominated for Outstanding Original Song), Godspell (2001 National Tour), and orchestrations for The Rockettes and the Oscars. He is an Honorary Doctorate of Music recipient from his alma mater, Berklee College Of Music, and resides in New York.
