Teatro Luna, AMERICA'S Pan Latina Theatre Company, based in Chicago, will be performing at at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican Cultural Center (MACC), 600 River Street, Austin, TX on June 20, 2013 @ 7:30pm. Teatro Luna is working in conjunction with TEATRO VIVO, Theatre with heart.

With LUNA UNLACED, the ladies of Luna give you a chance to decide the show live from moment to moment! We’ve unpacked, unfettered and unlaced the entire canon of work to bring audiences across Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California the very best of Luna with our trademark humor that we use when telling real stories. 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!
