Teatro Vivo gives the gift of laughter this holiday season with the bilingual comedy Cuento Navideño, Bah Humbug in the Barrio. Written and directed by Rupert Reyes and inspired by Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, Cuento Navideño ( A Christmas Story) takes place on Christmas Eve in a modern, urban Latino community. Evangelina Cruz is the Latina Ebenezer Scrooge! She is a selfish businesswoman who has lost touch with her culture, her family and connection to her community. An unexpected visit from the ghost of her former business partner, the once equally-greedy Teodora, sets Evangelina on a journey to look closely at her choices. This festive bilingual comedy infuses Latino culture, Spanish language, and Latino holiday traditions in a show to be enjoyed by the whole Austin familia.

Each performance will have surprise stars representing local community leaders, elected officials, celebrities and guest artists who will have a small (but fun) part in the play.
