Stage: Fandango for Butterflies (and Coyotes)

La Jolla Playhouse, 2910 La Jolla Village Drive, San Diego


This joy-filled play with music is a heartfelt look in to the lives of the real people behind the immigration headlines.

Fandangos are vibrant gatherings in which music and dance bring stories of a community to life. For a group of immigrants gathering in a community center on the eve of a city-wide ICE raid, this night’s fandango serves a vital purpose: to resurrect the culture they left behind. Inspired by interviews with immigrants from Latin America – many of whom made a dangerous journey to the United States – Fandango for Butterflies (and Coyotes) is a celebration of the resiliency and camaraderie that can be built as strangers become friends, friends become family, and the music plays on. This “rapturous” and “riveting“ new play is a “sensitive portrait of the in-between: characters balancing the small joys of everyday life with the fear of uncertainty” (The New York Times).
