Host of Backstage Talk and Co-host of What's Up Broadway?
Colombian performing artist and communications professional, Martín Acuña, has always dreamt about one and one thing only: Broadway.
He still recalls when he fell in love with Musical Theatre – after seeing the Lion King on December 28th, 2008 at the Minskoff Theatre – and since then it’s all been about finding his way to New York. Still based in his home city, Bogotá, he started Backstage Talk in early 2020 – just before the craziness happened – as a way to put his thoughts about Broadway out there, and it quickly evolved to an interview-based show that sheds light upon those entertainment professionals who we don’t usually hear from, and also to bridge the gap between the upcoming Colombian Musical Theatre industry and Broadway.
In 2019, he graduated college after coursing a double major, receiving a BFA in Communications and a BFA in Performing Arts. Besides musicals, Martín has found his passion in assistant direction, podcasting, content creation for social media and project management across the entertainment industry.
Martín joined the BPN family in 2021 as a co-host on What’s Up Broadway?, by the hand of the incredible Ayanna Prescod and Christian Lewis. The trio do weekly shows for everything buzzworthy happening on the Great White Way. From show openings, and what’s trending on “theatre Twitter,” to Broadway star interviews and up to date news, this show is the one-stop-shop for all your Broadway news and chatter.
