In “The Latina Christmas Special,” three first generation Latinas get together to dish about everything from moms to cucarachas to Farrah Fawcett in a no holds barred evening holiday soirée as they relive some of their very personal Christmas stories (and fantasies) of holidays past shared with families and loved ones. The show is a series of holiday memories told through the eyes of three comedic actresses: Diana Yanez, a Cuban American from Miami (of Hollywood; “Margaret Cho’s The Sensuous Woman”), Sandra Valls, a Mexican American from Laredo, Texas (of Altadena; Showtime’s “Latin Divas of Comedy”) and Maria Russell, the daughter of an over-dedicated Mexican mother and a compliant Lithuanian father (of Studio City; FX’s “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) helmed by director Rivas, founding member of LTC.
Performances will be presented at the Los Angeles Theater Center, 514 S. West Sixth Street – Historic Core/Downtown L.A.), Los Angeles. Tickets to the show may be purchased by calling toll free (866) 811-4111 or online by visiting www.thelatc.org. Theatre Calendar Listing Latino Theater Company Presents An Extension of The Hit Play,
