January 24-February 16; Previews January 22-23

Step into the colorful and chaotic world of Miami’s art scene with “Laughs in Spanish” by Alexis Scheer! As Art Basel looms, Mariana finds herself in a sticky situation: her gallery is a crime scene! But fear not, because with her quirky support crew including her intern Carolina, the charming police officer Juan, and her flamboyant mother Estella, a plan is brewing to save the day. This uproarious blend of who-done-it and telenovela guarantees non-stop laughter while grooving in your seat to the rhythm of this vibrant, stylish new play taking the country by storm. 

“Laughs in Spanish is, at its heart, a mother-daughter comedy with a healthy dash of Latin spice.”   – OnStage Colorado

“Laughing, as it turns out, is a universal language.”
