Laughs in Spanish

Written by Alexis Scheer

Directed by Rebecca Rivas

Producers Victoria & Alex Lazar

In co-production with TheatreSquared

February 16-March 17

Sterling Stage



Art Basel is about to begin and Mariana, director of a swanky modern gallery, has a big problem on her hands. Her showroom is an active crime scene. When Mariana’s movie star mother tries to save the show, everything gets hilariously complicado. Performed in English con un poquito de español, this fast-paced, cafecito-infused comedy about art and success—and mothers and daughters—is a joyous snapshot of Cuban and Colombian-American culture set in the heart of Miami’s Wynwood Arts District.
