About Streamed Performance: American Mariachi
Though live performances of "American Mariachi" at Dallas Theater Center in Dallas, TX were canceled as part of the community's efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, Dallas Theater Center is thrilled to offer audiences the chance to experience the show from home through this video recorded performance, made in March 2020. The theater is offering tickets to their streamed performance in a "Pay What You Can" style so that you can choose your price based on what you can afford and how many people will be watching with you. Your ticket purchase goes directly back to supporting the theater as they plan for the future.
Spending her days caring for her ailing mother, Lucha yearns to break her monotonous routine. Here’s a wild idea: an all-girl mariachi band! But it’s the 1970s, and girls can’t be mariachis... or can they? As Lucha and her spunky cousin hunt for bandmates, dodge disapproving relatives, and bring Mom along for the ride, they wonder: will the band come together? "American Mariachi" is a heartwarming and hilarious comedy that will send your heart soaring and put a bounce in your step with a wave of vibrant, infectious live music. A huge hit in San Diego and Denver, now coming to Dallas, before moving on to Chicago.
