Directed by Ricardo Gutierrez
Momma’s Boyz is a modern-day tale about three inner-city friends magically given a second chance to revisit their decision to get some quick money by selling drugs. Updated and set in Chicago for its Teatro Vista debut, the story begins at the end of their journey, with Mimic standing over the coffin containing his best friend, Shine. Mimic swears if it were possible, he would turn back time to make sure his friend doesn’t fall prey to a senseless act of violence. Funny, real, and packed with poetic energy, Momma’s Boyz rewinds back to the moment when making a different choice could magically change the course of their lives forever.
About the Ticket Supplier: Teatro VistaCelebrating our 21st season, Teatro Vista introduces a new identity that represents our future, uniqueness, authenticity and pride as the largest, non-profit-equity, Latino theater company producing full scale, Latino oriented, theatrical productions in English.
In the fall of 1989, Teatro Vista was but a fragile thought, concept, idea that was born out of a conversation between the two founders, Edward Torres and Henry Godinez. The two met while working together in a play in Chicago. At that time, they were actors who shared a passion and were similarly inspired by the lack of acting opportunities, beyond stereotypical casting roles, that were available to Latino actors and actresses. Their conversations became heated as they discussed Latino writers and scripts that not only challenged the actors but the director and audience. They grew anxious to find a platform to share their creative energies and share their message with people from all walks of life and varying cultures. Hence, in 1990, Teatro Vista was born.
A fledgling theater company that sought to celebrate our humanity, aspirations and hopes for a world where our similarities far outweigh our differences; using the stage to engage, connect, and challenge audience members via stories that reflect the universality of our humanity, but which are told from the Latino perspective. In essence, offering a different point of view.
