About this show

The world premiere of The Blade of Jealousy, Henry Ong's modern-day adaptation of Spanish Renaissance playwright Tirso de Molina's madcap comedy La celosa de sí misma (Jealous of Herself). Directed by Denise Blaisor.

Dashing Melchor moves to Los Angeles to meet his online dating connection, but unexpectedly falls in love with a mysterious veiled lady (Magdalena), and she with him. He later meets her sans veil and is unimpressed, thus igniting Magdalena's jealousy — of herself! A farcical commedia of disguise and deception ensues.

With original music and sound design by Longo Chu. Featuring: Natalie Amenula, Cynthia Dane, Juan Haro, Eddie Mui, Carla Valina, and Terry Woodberry.
