Destiny of Desire

Passion. Deception. Forbidden love. The beloved telenovela comes to the Goodman stage – with a provocative twist.

On a stormy night in small town Mexico, two baby girls are born – one to poverty, one to privilege-and then secretly switched. Eighteen years later the girls meet, brought together by misfortune. Or is it fate? Filled with glorious live music, this smart, contemporary comedy proves just how much the world can transform when women take destiny into their own hands. 

Performed in English with songs sung in English and Spanish.

Produced in association with South Coast Repertory.
