Two couples who've been vacationing together for 25 years party it up in Cancún, where a late-night revelation leads to a whole new reality once the sun comes up. GALA Hispanic Theatre launches its 39th season with the DC premiere of this cutting-edge comedy, written by award-winning Catalonian Jordi Galcerán (The Grönholm Method), and staged in Spanish with screen-projected English surtitles. The ensemble features Chani Martín, Luz Nicolás and Carlos Castillo, who appeared to acclaim in last season's Cabaret Barroco, and Maggie Bofill, who'll be making her GALA debut. Learn More

This was a wonderful show. I am biased since the composer of the music was a long time friend who tragically died in 2006. This was a world premier of a project he'd been working on. The story is a tragicomedy dealing with a very realistic disfunctional family where the widowed matriarch is beginning to suffer from senility. Her spinster daughter is her caregivver and the rest of her children, two other daughters and her son plus two grandchildren and a son-in-law come to her home for "A Family Reunion." As an opera nearly every word of dialog is sung. The onstage orchestra consists of a string quintet plus piano. If this is ever staged again I will be sure to see it again and I strongly recomend it.
