Additional Information


Stream a video recorded performance of American Mariachi, now through April 5. Written by José Cruz Gonzalez, directed by Henry Godinez.

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 about family, progress, and the freedom to dream big 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. A co-production with Goodman Theatre.
