Who would have thought that a play about Alzheimer’s, family, culture, girl power and mariachi music could be so hilarious yet so touching.
American Mariachi got off to great start last night at the Denver Center for Performing Arts.
The final dress rehearsal received lots of laughs, a few tears and a resounding standing ovation from the mostly Latino audience at the Stage Theater in downtown Denver. Theater goers received tickets courtesy of Mexican Cultural Center of Denver.
Look for the complete review of American Mariachi coming soon to LatinLifeDenver.com with comments from those who were involved in bringing this play to Denver as well as from Thursday night’s audience who were the first to see the world premiere of this new musical play that highlights a time in Chicano/Mexicano cultural history when female mariachis were unheard of.
