A proud descendant of Puerto Rican lineage, Angelo embarked on a journey from the sun-soaked shores of Tampa to the bustling streets of New York a mere four years prior. He eloquently says, “It’s twenty hours by car from New York to Tampa, but you’re travelling back fifty years in time.”

By day, Angelo lends his talents to the bustling hubbub of the Schwartz diner, navigating the clatter and clamour with practised ease. As twilight descends, however, a metamorphosis unfolds. The enigmatic ‘sister’ Angel emerges, gracing the dimly lit stage of the local club, her voice a haunting echo of melodies from the cherished West Side Story.
