See what Teatro Bravo is cooking up for our lucky 13th season.
Bless Me, Ultima
By Rudolfo Anaya
Directed by Ricky Araiza
The play tells the story of six year old Tony Marez and his nurturing relationship with Ultima, a wise curandera who has come to stay with Tony and his family in the last year of her life. Throughout his time with Ultima, Tony delves into a spiritual transformation during cultural and societal changes in the American Southwest. Confronted with opposing expectations from his father Gabriel and his mother Maria, the absence of his brothers due to World War II and an emerging crisis of faith, Tony finds solace in the wisdom of Ultima and begins to create a new spiritual identity for himself with her help and knowledge of their mystical, pre-Columbian traditions.

For a lesbian couple, becoming parents is a big decision, especially
when one partner wants to, the other one is freaking out
and everybody has an opinion including, Leti the Goddess of Fertility.

The MotherF**ker with The Hat
By Stephen Adly Guirgis
Directed by Anthony Runfola
May 31st-June 15th
Jackie, out on parole and newly sober, is determined to start anew with his childhood sweetheart Veronica, but her unrelenting coke addiction, his slick-talking AA sponsor, and the discovery of another man’s hat in his living room all threaten to derail Jackie’s tenuous progress—and parole. A smash hit on Broadway, The Motherf**ker with the Hat is a cheerfully vulgar look at the complicated recovery from love and other addictions.
