A new bi-lingual musical!

From TheaterWorksUSA Family Summer Theater Series!

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.
