This riveting work of theater explores the border community of Ciudad Juárez, Mexico and El Paso, TX — one a hot zone of the drug cartel wars, the other, directly across the border, the self-proclaimed “Safest Large City in America.” Led by Juárez-born and -raised Founding Artistic Director Rubén Polendo, Theater Mitu’s company members condensed hundreds of hours of interviews and field recordings from both cities. Drawing on their research, JUÁREZ: A Documentary Mythology illuminates the region’s memories, hopes, and fears.
What to Expect
Seating is general admission on a riser. Preferred tickets are general admission seats located in the first rows of the theater. A full bar serves Bright Idea Brewing and Berkshire Mountain Distillery spirits.
Planning on dinner before the show? Our museum café Lickety Split rolls out a menu of favorites including Vermont black bean burgers, angus burgers, tasty paninis, quiche, and an array of fresh salads featuring field greens, goat cheese, and grilled pineapple, all priced at $10 or less.
JUÁREZ: A Documentary Mythology was made possible with funding by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Theater Project, with lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and touring support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
