We are proud to partner with TheaterWorksUSA and their Family Summer Theater series in the FREE NYC premiere tour of El Otro Oz.
Click your heels together tres veces and take a transformative journey with this salsa, merengue, and Mexican folk-infused musical.
As her fifteenth birthday approaches, Dora, a contemporary Latine teenager, struggles with her family’s ideas about tradition and dreads her impending quinceañera! But, when Dora gets swept away to a strange new land, she learns how to celebrate her unique rhythm and embrace her cultural identity.
