Ni Mi Madre

Aug 19 | Mon | 9:45 PM | $25 and up
View Website

Inspirited with the tradition of Umbanda ritual, the music of Gloria Estefan, Cher, and Maria Bethânia, NI MI MADRE invites the audience into the tumultuous relationship between Bete (a larger-than-life Brazilian woman who swears that if it weren't for Madonna, Meryl Streep, and Angelina Jolie she would have been the "It" thing) and her queer son. As she grapples with the secrets that tear her and her son apart, the unbidden memories of her estranged mother, and the lineage that binds them all together she unveils to us, her confidants, her judges, her audience, the downfalls of American parenting.

Venue: Teatro Sea
