The Latina Christmas Special
6322 Santa Monica Blvd. Hollywood
Try these three hilarious, touching and surprisingly personal Christmas stories of holidays past told in one-woman show format by Latina comedians, SANDRA VALLS, DIANA YANEZ and MARIA RUSSELL. These independent funny ladies have put together a show that is sure to become a holiday tradition for many Los Angelinos. Valls, a Mexican America from Laredo, Texas – Yanez, a Cuban American from Miami – and Russell, the daughter of an over-dedicated Mexican mother and compliant Lithuanian father share their sassy tales of the season as first generation Americans. A treat for adults of all ages as well as some youngins who don't mind the occasional strong language. In today's climate of diversity and the Hispanic situation, these powerful storytellers bring an enticing element of truth to their performances that is at once refreshing, real, and uniquely American with picante sauce. Each share their own quirky Christmas experiences of growing up in Latino families within their American homes that will brighten your holiday as well as fill you up with laughter, cheer and love of the immigrant situation.
