AMERICAN MARIACHI

by ​José Cruz González
directed by Christopher Acebo
Mission San Juan Capistrano
July 15​-31, 2021

Back by popular demand! In this big-hearted comedy with live music, Lucha spends her days caring for her mother and yearning for more. But it’s the 1970s and women can’t be mariachis…or can they? Defying tradition, Lucha and her spunky cousin hunt for bandmates and take up instruments. A loving gesture for a mother becomes much more as the young women dream big and embrace the transcendent power of music. “A tug at the heartstrings that will echo for days” (​The Denver Post)
