Do you feel sad? Are you looking for natural male enhancement? Still trying to shed those last 20 pounds? You just might need a prescription for LATINOL(tm), guaranteed to offer you a 100% authentic Latino experience. Or you might want to sit down and watch a queer Chicano figure out how to deal with the mission he was assigned at birth: to infiltrate white culture and aid his people in their struggle for equality! With the help of a Puerto Rican secret agent and two Mexican grandmothers, he navigates through a world of Harry Potter, Jem and the Holograms and Sound of Music references to find a way to be an artist, a radical, a big ol' queen and a credit to his people (hint: plus-size vintage gowns help). Possible side effects may include laughter, political insight, the occasional sniffle, and drymouth.
This production was written by and stars Rudy Ramirez (Promised Land; A Radical Queer Revival) and features Beliza Torres Narvaez (Resabios de Amargura/The Bitter Cabaret).
Fresh from a successful run at the Cohen New Works Festival at the University of Texas, Rudy Ramirez brings his new show home to The VORTEX for 3 nights only.
