"An instant holiday tradition!" --Alegria Magazine
Every ethnicity can relate to the feeling that their parents and families are a little “freaky” during the holidays when compared to the traditional American Christmases fed to us on TV. These three comedian friends: Sandra Valls (Showtime’s "Latin Divas of Comedy”) Maria Russell (MTV’s “Teen Wolf”) and Diana Yanez (Margaret Cho’s “Sensuous Woman”) show us with their personal tales that every family has its own hilarious peculiarities, everyone wants to belong, and every one, regardless of their heritage, has a hard time at some point in their life.
Directed by Geoffrey Rivas, the LATINA CHRISTMAS SPECIAL is a hybrid comedy performance which in itself has three original mini one-woman shows.
Warning: Some adult language and themes. PG-13
Starring Sandra Valls, a Mexican American from Laredo, Texas, Diana Yanez, a Cuban American from Miami and Maria Russell, the daughter of an over-dedicated Mexican mother and compliant Lithuanian father. Not only will they share their sassy tales of the season as first-generation Americans but they’ll deck the halls with guacamole! Fa la la la la. La la la - Ay!
Selected as Los Angeles Times "Critic's Choice" and "Things to Do in LA" since 2013!
