This spring, Teatro Vivo presents The Mexcentrics in Pulga Nation, a new sketch comedy show sin vergüenza. To give us an inside look on this vibrant series of sketches director of Pulga Nation, Estevan Zarate, tells us about the long-awaited comedy show about la pulga, the flea market.
Audiences coming to see The Mexcentrics should expect something new, bold y algo muy diferente.
“We are a new troupe that will hopefully bring a fresh take on sketch comedy to both Latino and other audiences in Austin,” said Zarate. “This show is going to be a lot of fun for people who are looking for a departure from the normal date night.”
Pulga Nation highlights eccentric characters with a hilarious cast and it shows audiences what this cultural icon is all about.
“I have had an incredible time getting to know this cast. They are all very talented people with bright futures,” said Zarate. “I am also very happy with the script that I’ve been given, [writers] Omar Gallaga and Raul Garza are so good at creating believable dialogue.”
So if you are wondering how to start your spring break this year, come find out what great things Pulga Nation has to offer and what Teatro Vivo is all about.
“Teatro Vivo is my home,” says Zarate. “I have been working with them for quite a while now and I feel like they are the most supportive company in town.”
Performances are March 7-9, Thursday-Saturday, at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. at the Salvage Vanguard Theater. Admission is $10. For tickets and information visit our website!
