This Weekend in Theatre
In honor of FITLA (International Latino Theatre Festival of Los Angeles), we're doing a mostly Latin theme to our theatre picks this week...
A 1998 earthquake in Bolivia ripped apart the country – and the political aftershocks made a terrible situation even worse. This drama features actual testimonies and imagery to shed light on the devestation and corruption that followed. Performed in Spanish with English subtitles. Produced in association with FITLA.

Divino Pastor Gongora
Divino Pastor Góngora, a fictitious 18th century actor in New Spain is on the run from an Inquisitor obsessed on capturing him. “This is a contemporary performance that plays with space and time and travels from comic farce to melodrama with brilliant musical and choreographed moments.”
