by Latino Comedy Project
Apr. 28 - May. 08
In a loving homage of live comedy, original videos and visual spectacle, ¡Estar Guars! re-creates the classic sci-fi rebellion as a modern-day Resistencia, complete with Galactic Walls, space chanclas, migrant moisture farmers, fearless princesas, mystical abuelas and the targeting of Sanctuary Planetas by an evil empire determined to MAGGA (Make A Galaxy Great Again).
They're all here: Luke, La Princesa Leia Organa-Cortez, Tio Juan Kenobi, Yola, R2Me2, Darth Vendido, ICE Troopers and more!
This year, celebrate May The Fourth and Cinco De Mayo with Emmy-nominated sketch group The Latino Comedy Project in a comedy fiesta set “not long ago, in a barrio just around the way…”
This is not your fanboy’s Star Wars.
In an encore of its popular first sold-out run, ¡Estar Guars!: A May The Fourth/Cinco De Mayo Comedy Fiesta promises a one-of-a-kind live multimedia comedy show full of high adventure, swashbuckling duels, and adorable furry brown creatures speaking in exotic alien tongues - like Spanglish! (This show is performed mostly in English with some Spanglish and is rated PG-13.)
Written and directed by LCP Artistic Director Adrian Villegas (Gentrif*cked, Barrio Daze), the ¡Estar Guars! cast of performers also includes: Aizelynn Almaguer, Cindy Brio (¡Escándalo!: The Improvised Bilingual Telenovela), Michael Galvan (Más Cara, Dance Nation), Kevin Garcia, Andy Gonzalez-Bendiksen (¡Escándalo!, Barney Miller: Dark Knight), John Johnston, Adam Martinez (La Pastorela, Enoughie), Eva McQuade (Real Women Have Curves, Last: An Extinction Story), Barbara H. Mojica (Más Cara, Yana Wana, MX: 499), Thelma Rosana (¡Escándalo!, Firefly: The Musical), Nick Walker (Gentrif*cked).
(This presentation of ¡Estar Guars! is made possible by a collaboration with award-winning improv troupe Escandalo! and ESB-MACC’s LAPP program.)

In ¡Estar Guars!: A May The Fourth/Cinco De Mayo Comedy Fiesta, The Latino Comedy Project asks the question: What would Star Wars have looked like if George Lucas had been JORGE Lucas?
