Bah Humbug in the Barrio
This holiday season, Teatro Vivo will be presenting its unique take on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Cuento Navideño re-imagines Ebenezer Scrooge as a Latina businesswoman, Evangelina Cruz. Evangelina (played by Mary Alice Carnes) is visited by the ghost of her former business partner, Teodora (Yvonne Flores), who takes on the roles of all three Christmas spirits to convince Evangelina to change her selfish ways. This comedic, family-friendly take on the holiday classic is set in a modern day Latino neighborhood, and explores the way Evangelina has sacrificed her connection to her culture, her family, and her community in the pursuit of financial success.
