Men. Women. Women dressed as men. Teatro Luna, Chicago's All-Latina Theater Company, reopens its newest world-premiere, Machos, an interview-based play about contemporary masculinities.
In 2006, frustrated with their boyfriends, brothers, and bosses, this company of Latina women set out to answer the question: what are men really thinking? The result is Machos, a performance drawn from interviews with 50 men nationwide and performed by an all-Latina cast in drag. From a young mans relationship with his correctional officer father to man cheating on his wife with himself to an epic confrontation between fraternity brothers, Machos presents a range of true-life stories with Teatro Luna's trademark humor and unique Latina point of view.
