New musical "DESAPARECIDAS" performing at Joe's Pub
Celebrating the individual lives of women in México, the musical by Jaime Lozano and Florencia Cuenca will hold an all-female performance in the classic NYC venue on Monday, March 28th, 2022 at 7:00 pm.
DESAPARECIDASexplores the systematic oppression of women in the fight to end gender-based violence and the killing of women and girls in Ciudad Juárez, México. An eclectic group of local female organizers gather for a secret rally, but when a newcomer stumbles upon their midnight vigil on the eve before her quinceañera, she is forced to envision an identity beyond her assumed fate.
Conceived by Lozano, Cuenca and Rachel Stevens and with arrangements and orchestrations by Lozano and Jesús Altamira, Desaparecidas will feature music directed by Jhoely Garay. Featuring an all female cast and band, the performers include Daphne Rubin-Vega (Rent, In the Heights film), Aline Mayagoitia (Forbidden Broadway: The Next Generation), Sonia de los Santos (Latin Grammy nominee), Majo Rivero and co-author Florencia Cuenca.
Magical and interwoven, DESAPARECIDAS celebrates the individual lives of women in México, illuminating the challenge between embracing honored cultural customs while fighting for autonomy in a dangerous world of machismo.
