"A big-hearted musical play"
– Denver Post

2021 Season in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Familia, amor and tradición are at the heart of this hilarious and heartwarming new comedy about the freedom to dream big. Lucha spends her days caring for her ailing mother, but longs to shake up her 1970s home life. When a forgotten record album sparks her mother’s memory, Lucha and her cousin strike upon a radical idea: to create an all-female mariachi band. Infused with live mariachi music, this “big-hearted, musical tug at the heartstrings” (Denver Post) reveals how music and love can make just about anything possible.

Presented in English.

A Co-Production with Dallas Theater Center

Produced in association with Teatro Vista.

Presented in collaboration with the Chicago Latino Theater Alliance and Sones de México Ensemble.
