About the show: La Llorona is a play based on the Urban Legend originating in Mexico. The tale is that of The Weeping Woman, an infamous apparition who searches for her children and is known to cause grave misfortune to any living person who sees her. Our telling of this folktale will be expanded, warped, and twisted through the incorporation of live music, movement, and dance elements.
*La Llorna was a finalist for Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ Powered By Off-Center residency program.
Stay tuned for an announcement this summer about a multi-playwright collaboratio coming to Theater 29 in the final months of 2019. Dates TBD
