Teatro Vivo returns in December 2012 with the gift of laughter this holiday season with the bilingual comedy
Cuento Navideño, Bah Humbug in the Barrio
December 6 - 16, Thursdays - Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m.
Rollins Theatre, Long Center
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.
