by Teatro Audaz
Jul. 04 - Jul. 07
Teatro Audaz presents award-winningplaywright Raul Garza's Confessions of a Mexpatriate, a funny and pooignant tale about multicultural identityu in status-driven America. In this deeply funny, deeply thought-provoking piece, a Mexican-American urban sophisticate who wants to connect with his roots ventures deep into the Mexican interior.
Audiences in Austin, Chicago, Albequerque, Santa Fe and San Miguel de Allende have fallen in love with this play.
"Charming and delightfully funny . . . . this 75-minute production feels more like 25 minutes. . . . Director Ken Webster sculpts each moment with the precision of a surgeon. . . . Mical Trejo shares his naturally warm and engaging persona to create an interesting, imperfect and generous character . . . Plays like this tend to live long lives and I predict that [Raul] Garza will prove to be one of the more important playwrights of our time."
- Broadway World Austin
"Trejo has the comedic chops to give full vent to a hypercritical broadside on the chichi substitution of "house-made" for "homemade" and land the laughs without coming off as a jerk. He's also an actor with a natural affability . . . able to tap into a character's needs and vulnerabilities to get you feeling the turmoil inside him."
- Austin Chronicle
"Extremely warm, witty and whimsical. . . . Trejo never fails to find the humor buried within [Raul] Garza’s words, bringing us along on Samuel’s journey as invisible companions who sometimes make important connections and realizations about his life even before he does. Through Samuel, we see a charming bridging of cultural gaps that we so badly need in today’s world, and get quite a few laughs along the way."
- Austin American Statesman
Garza's play Fantasmaville received the National Latino Playwriting Award in 2009.
