Familia, amor and tradición—and breaking it—are at the heart of this “big-hearted musical tug at the heartstrings” (Denver Post).
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
Presented in Association with Chicago Latino Theater Alliance as part of Destinos featuring Sones de México Ensemble.
