Teatro Luna: ONE NIGHT ONLY!
Teatro Luna, AMERICA'S Pan Latina Theatre Company, based in Chicago come to ImprovBoston for one night only.
With LUNA UNLACED, the ladies of Luna give you a chance to decide the show live from moment to moment! Using monologues, songs, improv, scenes and poetry, the Ladies of Luna delve into a whole slew of issues ranging from our sexuality, latinidad, adventures in immigrant story archives, unfortunate racist encounters we’ve lived through, and the sometimes self-induced drama that makes up our lives as Latinas in the USA.
The idea is simple: we’ve picked twenty of our favorite pieces from recent productions, and through a series of random draws, Twitter battles and loteria games, the audience picks the twelve pieces they want to see. The show is different every night, and every night, the actors are as surprised by the outcome as the audience. Anything can happen with the Ladies of Luna!
This play is presented in English with a sprinkle of Spanish.
