PARKING: A $10 parking pass was available for Horton Plaza OR the NBC garage. As I was not certain I was going to make it on time, I chanced Horton Plaza and was delighted with the validation and pass.

Parking in the parking structure can be a bit confusing. Fortunately found a security guard. When I told him where I thought I had parked, he explained there was another area with similar markings and then directed me there. Also the parking structure has recently reduced hours of free validated parking from 3 or 4 hours to one. So the next time you drive to this venue and plan to park in the structure, verify if the performance provides parking validation for the entire duration of the show.

Very impressed with the cast and screenplay. Have enjoyed Vivia Font and Mike Sears in many local productions and are always happy to see their great talent again. Kinan Valdez was great as were supporting cast. Minimal set worked beautifully...continued

This play was excellent. I read the book and, given the complexity, wondered how the writers could make it into a play. He did a superb job. The acting was terrific and the stage sets were great. I highly recommend this play whether or not you...continued

Quotes & Highlights

This play is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New American Plays award.


Playwright Matthew Spangler is the author of the critically-acclaimed stage adaptation of the blockbuster novel The Kite Runner. Now Spangler has fashioned a rip-roaring tale that screams out, “We are all in this together!” Part satire and part parable, Tortilla Curtain is humorous and heart breaking, a story that speaks passionately to the future of California and the challenges of forming “a more perfect union” in our changing America.
