About this show

Adapted from the internationally acclaimed novel La Guaracha del Macho Camacho by Luis Rafael Sánchez, ¡Guaracha! is a new musical satire from Pregones/PRTT's Latinx ensemble. The setting is an epic afternoon traffic jam in mid-1970s San Juan, Puerto Rico. The sun is blazing hot and hit song "La Vida Es una Cosa Fenomenal" (Life Is a Phenomenal Thing) blares out of every car radio. A cast of wild, mostly lovable, and decidedly over-the-top characters — the DJ, the Senator, the Socialite Wife, the Son, the Mistress, and Doña Chon, the nosy neighbor — poke fun at a situation most messy, most sticky, and most certainly out of control!
