Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre will reopen its Mainstage series this summer with ¡FUÁCATA! or A Latina’s Guide to Surviving the Universe, a humorous one-woman tour de force starring Elena María García.
Originally produced by Zoetic Stage in 2017, ¡FUÁCATA! brings more than 20 Latina women to glorious life on stage by weaving together tales of love, marriage, immigration, and identity through eccentric stories and whimsical song. A collaboration between Zoetic Stage artistic director Stuart Meltzer and highly celebrated, three-time Carbonell Award-winning Cuban-American actress Elena María García, ¡FUÁCATA! finds endless humor in what it means to be Latina in today’s America, where politicians speak of building walls while tourism booms in Havana.
“Elena María García is one of the funniest actors that I’ve ever seen on stage, and I couldn’t have asked for a more resonant and hilarious show to reopen our Mainstage with,” said Actors’ Playhouse Artistic Director David Arisco. “We absolutely can’t wait to welcome guests back to the Miracle Theatre for our Mainstage productions after being shut down for more than a year due to the pandemic.”
The creative team for ¡FUÁCATA! includes Scenic Design by Michael McKeever, Lighting Design by Rebecca Montero, Original Sound Design by Anton Church, and Production Stage Management by Amy Rauchwerger.
