This poignant and witty story explores a middle-aged woman's obsessive quest to find love with a young man who receives the gift of her late husband’s heart. An “exquisite” opportunity to see Pulitzer Prize-winner Nilo Cruz direct his own work. 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.
