"A big-hearted musical play"
– Denver Post

Sept 18 - Oct 24, 2021 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Familia, amor and tradición—and breaking it—are at the heart of this “big-hearted musical tug at the heartstrings” (Denver Post).

Lucha spends her days caring for her ailing mother, but longs to shake up her 1970s home life. When a forgotten record album sparks her mother’s memory, Lucha and her cousin strike upon a radical idea: to create an all-female mariachi band. Infused with live mariachi music, this “big-hearted, musical tug at the heartstrings” (Denver Post) reveals how music and love can make just about anything possible.

Presented in English.

A Co-Production with Dallas Theater Center

Presented in collaboration with the Chicago Latino Theater Alliance and Sones de México Ensemble.
