About this show

Created and produced in 2000, the original Generic Latina was Teatro Luna's pioneering inaugural production devised to combat the various Latina stereotypes dominating mainstream media. In honor of the 10 year anniversary of our first examination of Latina identity, the Lunáticas take on the question: What has changed for Latinas over the past 10 years? Generic Latina 2010 challenges you to confront old stereotypes and face new ones through original music, spoken word, and new autobiographical stories reflecting the diverse lives of these women: from one young woman's legal battle to change her name, to an intimate portrait of a Brazilian's first time wax (you mean to say that Brazilians don't really wax that way?), to a woman's surprise discovery that the only internationally understood reference to her own culture is West Side Story. GL 2010 is presented in English with a sprinkle of Spanglish.
