An unapologetic telenovela in two acts
In Karen Zacarías’s hilarious, provocative and revolutionary send-up of the telenovela genre, women take power over their futures, their families, and their destinies. Love and betrayal overflow amid a vibrant cast of classic Mexican telenovela characters, with nods to Shakespeare’s comedies and Brecht’s epic theatre. Two girls—one rich but sickly, one poor and healthy—are switched at birth by a scheming beauty queen. Eighteen years later, things fly apart when the two women meet, become friends and fall for men they are forbidden to love. José Luis Valenzuela directs this smart, effervescent musical production, with an ensemble cast featuring Vilma Silva, Catherine Castellanos, and Armando Durán.

Can Ken deal with his past before it destroys his future?
