Everyone who comes in contact with Marianela can't help but fall in love with her. She may be poor, and she may be illiterate, but her spirit is so infused with infectious joy that she improves the lives of every person she touches. One such person, Pablo -- for whom Marianela works as a seeing eye person -- has fallen head over heels for her, even though he's already engaged to be married to Florentina. Now Pablo wants to call off the wedding. But Florentina's family has arranged to pay for an expensive surgery that will cure him of his blindness -- but only if he goes through with the marriage. Now Pablo must choose between true love and the gift of sight. This adaptation and translation of the beloved 19th century Spanish novel of the same name incorporates 18th and 19th-century music, including spirituals and slave songs Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: MBS Productions
MBS Productions specializes in “new theater.” In essence, every play or musical they do is a world premier. They are the only theatrical production company in North Texas that specializes exclusively in producing previously unseen works for the stage. They deem their audience to be the most adventurous, sophisticated, and eager, for they know that they’ll get to experience these new works.
MBS Productions was founded in 2004 by Mark-Brian Sonna when he produced the show, “Theatre of Death,” which was presented at the Teatro Dallas space for the Halloween season. The show consisted of six short plays dating from the middle ages through the present day, all dealing with death. Two of the plays were world premiers, three were new translations, and one was an adaptation of an existing work. This set the tone for what was to come. In 2005, they did a second show of “Theatre of Death” to kick off a 3-show season that carried them through the summer of 2006. In their 2006/2007 season, they presented five plays. They currently produce six shows a year, as well as assist and serve as consultants to other theater companies in developing and producing new and existing plays for their audiences.
