La Liga de la Decencia
by Cohen New Works Festival, University of Texas
Apr. 03 - Apr. 05
It's another night in 1945 and Mexico City is quivering with excitement. World War II is over and in a dusty cabaret, our EMCEE welcomes all to sit down and relax in this atmosphere of social and gender transgression. How revealing will the vedette's costumes be? Who will the comedians target in their jokes? Will the latest political events be discussed? Or will they try to distract the audience with dance, lights, and spectacle? Moreover, what are the entertainers trying to distract the audience from? And what exactly is going on beyond the walls of the cabaret during a time of political instability?
