An epic, theatrical event! For the first time, Evelina Fernández’s award-winning trilogy, 'Faith,’ ‘Hope’ and ‘Charity,’ will be presented in its entirety as one unforgettable tour de force. The first production in the Latino Theater Company’s fall programming celebrating the company’s 30th anniversary and its 10th year operating the Los Angeles Theatre Center, audiences can choose to enjoy this adventure over the course of two evenings — or as one thrilling, all-day immersive experience (box dinners available for purchase). Travel with the Morales family through decades of the Mexican-American experience, from a remote mining town in Arizona during World War II, to the Phoenix family home during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and, finally to Los Angeles following the death of Pope John Paul II in 2005. Compelling, funny and peppered with song, ‘A Mexican Trilogy’ is the winner of the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle’s Ted Schmitt Award and was published by Samuel French in 2015. “As poetic, imaginative, and culturally accessible a work as anything since the commercial emergence of Tony Kushner.” — David C. Nichols, Backstage.
Performances of ‘A Mexican Trilogy: An American Story’ take place Sept. 15 through Oct. 9. The first half of the trilogy (Part A: Mexican Revolution to the Cuban Missile Crisis) can be seen on Thursdays at 8 p.m.; Saturdays at 5 p.m.; and Sundays at 3 p.m. The second half (Part B: assassination of JFK to the death of Pope John Paul II) runs on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 6 p.m. For those wishing to experience the entire trilogy in one day, box dinners are available for $20 between performances on Saturdays and Sundays (must be ordered 48 hours in advance). Preview performances take place Sept. 8 through Sept. 11 on the same schedule. Ticket prices are $50 for a single part, or $90for the entire experience.
