I'm happy to see Sergio Trujillo be honored. Some of the most thrilling choreography I've ever seen in a musical was his in the San Francisco out-of-town tryout of "The Mambo Kings" in 2005. It was an unsuccessful adaptation of the Oscar Hijuelos book that won the Pulitzer, "The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love," which was also made into a film starring Armando Assante and Antonio Banderas.

The musical, as performed in SF in 2005, was not good, and yet there were dance sequences that were gorgeous and extremely exciting. So much high energy Broadway choreography feels generic to me, and Trujillo's in "The Mambo King" was magnificently not. It felt terribly sad at the time for his work, and that of his extraordinary ensemble not to be seen beyond SF.
