Como agua para Chocolate (Like Water for Chocolate)


A dash of romance, a sprinkle of comedy, and lots of quail, chile, mole, and rose petals create an intense world of passion! A young woman trapped by traditions finds freedom in cooking so magical it inspires people to laugh, cry, and burn with desire. Performed in Spanish with English surtitles.

About the Venue:
Set on top of the former Tivoli Theatre's balcony, the new theater house design uses the existing balcony's stepped concrete for its seating. The vibrant design echoes the vitality of the theater company and the Latino creative spirit. A curved wall for art dominates the lobby, while the concessions bar creates a focal counterpoint within the space.
