Teatro Vista announced today its 3-play 2019-20 line-up.
The season kicks off this fall with the Chicago premiere of “Hope: Part II of A Mexican Trilogy” by Evelina Fernández, which explores Mexican American life in the ’60s. Teatro Vista Artistic Director Ricardo Gutiérrez directs the production, which is also the company’s entry in DESTINOS — the 3rd installment of the Chicago International Latino Theater Festival. Performances are September 21 – October 27, 2019 at a location TBA.
The spring brings “The Dream King,” a world premiere by ensemble member Marvin Quijada, about a man falling in love with the woman of his dreams, while in his dreams. It’s a physical piece told mostly without words. Sandra Márquez directs. Performances are April 4 – May 10, 2020 at The Richard Christiansen Theatre in The Biograph, 2433 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago.
The final production of Teatro Vista’s 2019-20 season is José Cruz González’s “American Mariachi,” a new comedy about an all-female mariachi band and the freedom to dream big, presented in association with Goodman Theatre. Goodman Resident Artistic Associate Henry Godinez, who co-founded Teatro Vista 30 years ago, directs. Performances are April 25-May 31, 2020 in Goodman’s Albert Theatre, 170 N. Dearborn St., Chicago.
