Description

In Spanish with English Surtitles

By Carlos Ferrari

Directed by Luis Caballero

 

A hilarious and satirical take on the most notorious times in history of the island and the development of today’s “Boricua,” this musical was an instant hit in Puerto Rico when it first opened. Ferrari, an established and frequently produced playwright in Puerto Rico and co-founder of the distinguished Nuevo Teatro Group, spins tales of the Taíno natives, the many invaders from the Conquistadores to the USA, and the ups and downs of contemporary life in the enchanted island.
