EXCERPTS FROM THE ARTICLE
Below are excerpts from the March 25, 2017 Metro Weekly article on Los Otros.
EVERYMAN THEATRE'S 'LOS OTROS' EXPLORES CULTURAL AND SEXUAL IDENTITY
Baltimore’s Everyman Theatre presents a timely reworking of what has been called “an unusual kind of musical” by composer Michael John LaChiusa (The Wild Party) and writer Ellen Fitzhugh (Grind).
Infused with compassionate, cross-cultural understanding, Los Otros features two Californians who reflect on profound moments from the past in which their individual experiences, as a white woman and a Latino, are linked by a collective sense of “otherness.”
Broadway vets Judy McLane (Mamma Mia!) and Philip Hernández (Kiss of the Spider Woman) relate the tales through a series of vignettes, in a production helmed by Noah Himmelstein, with Jon Kalbfleisch leading a live on-stage instrumental ensemble.
A semi-autobiographical work, Los Otros is said to be inspiring, energetic and emotionally charged in its exploration of issues such as cultural/sexual identity and interconnectedness, as well as love, risk and revelation.
