Pain of the Macho
by Teatro Audaz
Sep. 13 - Sep. 22
In the face of political correctness and the feminist movement, satirist Rick Najera dares to proclaim - tongue in cheek, of course - that machos are regular guys, too. In The Pain of the Macho Najera has assembled an ensemble cast of quintessential Latin Lovers or wannabes who pour out their souls in side-splitting monologs. But the zing in the punchline hits us when we realize that melodramatic, teary-eyed spiels lend sly insights into the dilemma faced not just by Latin men but all those who must exist at the margins of two intersecting cultural spheres.
