About Me

Diego Alejandro González (he.they) is an NYC based theatre artist by way of the borderlands, with a BFA in Musical Theatre from Abilene Christian University.

 

Originally from Monterrey, México, Diego moved to McAllen, TX at 11 where they nourished their practice of crosscultural artistry. They love city life, but will always feel at home by the US/Mexican border where they grew up. At age 20, Diego penned and directed Guadalupe, an original play about Latine queerness, family, and the "nepantla" borderlands experience. Connect with them if you want to chat Latinx art, music and literature!

Diego has worked in theatre administration at:

Ars Nova, The Public Theater, Roundabout Theatre Company, Tectonic Theater Project, Thirteen O' Clock Theatre and All Star Theatre.

Credits include the 1st Nat'l Tour of Escape to Margaritaville (as Jesús and U/S Brick, Jamal), Cinderella/All Shook Up/9 to 5 (Arrow Rock Lyceum) and Man of La Mancha (JW Engeman). Some of his favorite roles have been Mr. Mistoffelees (CATS) at the Abilene Civic Center, Caliban (The Tempest) with the Abilene Shakespeare Festival, and Melchior (Spring Awakening: A New Musical) with All Star Theatre.
