The playhouse is very cozy, not too large. The play made me laugh out loud. The people that serve the public at Laguna Playhouse are top notch. Very nice event.

More Information


It’s a birthday party nobody will forget! In this engaging comedy, Abuela, the matriarch of a Cuban-exile family living in Miami in 1974, is turning 75. Much-married Maritza and her teenage daughter, Marty, have driven in from Texas.  Live-at-home single son, Tio, hopes everything will go smoothly. However, as the punch flows, the sky turns stormy and Eric, the handsome gardener, arrives, the party unravels. Meanwhile, Alexandros, Abuela’s bad-tempered pooch, becomes the catalyst for an emotional meltdown in which closet doors open, truths tumble out and the bonds of family love are reasserted. Alexandros is by the author Sonia Flew_, which was staged at The Laguna Playhouse during the 2006-2007 season. _
