Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Musicals, comedies, dramas - and some unexpected surprises - are on the boards for the new season at The Boutique Dinner Theatre. The Boutique will also be featuring book-signings, short play workshops, and other events for personal growth and enjoyment.
Opening the Boutique Dinner Theatre season is the two-woman smash from the famous Mexican playwright, Emilio Carballido.
Emilio Carballido, 1925-2008, was a theater director and the author of a hundred plays. Some were written for children; others made into movies. His work is said to be marked by a strong social conscience, shown in his criticism of injustices deeply ingrained in Mexican society. Carballido has been called "the Tennessee Williams of Mexican playwrights." After his death, in Veracruz, Mexico, the governor there ordered a day of mourning, and announced the Theatre of the State, and one of its literary prizes, would be named after him.
Set for November 3-12 at The Boutique, "La Rosa de Dos Aromas" has been translated and directed by T.J. Hartung. It was performed in Spanish in Puerto Vallarta about a dozen years ago, and this is the first time it will be performed in English here. The play stars Catalina Meders and Catherine Beeghly, who have performed together in four shows at The Boutique Theatre.
Also in November will be "The Oldest Profession," directed by Ralph Hyman, November 17-26. This hilarious comedy follows the lives of five aging prostitutes. Watch these high-kicking 70-somethings share their stories with laughter and song.
Starting Wednesday, November 16, Mikki Prost stars in her hit one-woman show, "Walkin' After Midnight: A Tribute to Patsy Cline." Prost is beloved to her audiences for the shows she researches, writes, and performs. Wednesdays at 7:30 pm are reserved for her endearing and inspirational tribute shows.
