Description

The uniquely Southern California experience is celebrated in candid, intimate song cycles of a Mexican-American man growing up in Carlsbad and a San Diego native reminiscing of her encounters with the Mexican community. This world premiere event is directed by multiple Tony Award®-nominee Graciela Daniele, and features Tony Award®-winner Michele Pawk (Hollywood Arms, Hairspray, Cabaret_) and Julio Monge (_Twelfth Night, The Capeman, Man of La Mancha).

Commissioned by Center Theatre Group, this unconventional, beautifully crafted chamber musical, with book and lyrics by Tony Award®-nominee Ellen Fitzhugh (Paper Moon, Grind, Paradise Found_) and music by multiple Tony Award®-nominee Michael John LaChiusa (_The Wild Party, Marie Christine, Chronicle of a Death Foretold) is a masterful interplay of narrative and melody that remains true to its characters. Their stories become our stories: adventurous and romantic, honest and surprising and resonant.

This show is recommended for those ages 13 and older._
