He has been seen on Broadway in Bring It On The Musical and Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark and off-Broadway in The Anthem and F#%king Up Everything.Gotay joins a previously announced cast that includes Solea Pfeiffer as Eva and Maia Reficco as Young Eva, along with Philip Hernandez as Magaldi and Enrique Acevedo as Perón, with an ensemble comprising Sergio Martín Almirón, Fabio Angelo, Isa Antonetti, Leah Barsky, Kristina Bermudez, Edgar Cavazos, Alexander Gil Cruz, Rebecca Eichenberger, Jennifer Florentino, David Michael Garry, Mariano Loguidice, Robin Masella, Phoebe Garcia Pearl, Patricia Phillips, Guillermina Quiroga, Maria Cristina Slye, Lucas Thompson, Daniel Torres and Ricardo A.
