Lets say youre a gay teenager, and youre growing up in the barrio in Hollywood. You can count on being picked on for being queer, and maybe youll develop a fondness for original cast recordings and reruns of Bewitched. Chances are, youll have a small-minded, ethnocentric uncle who wants to send you to boot camp. But a stalker? A Mormon stalker? A run-in with Homeland Security? And a depressed mom whos hooked on Citalopram?
Little Queen, a new comedy by Guillermo Reyes, has all these things. Presented by Teatro Bravo and directed by Andres Alcala, the story of a gay kid who enters an Academy Awards-themed competition in hopes of winning a college scholarship promises high comedy and pages of commentary on contemporary culture. Katie McFadzen and Debra K. Stevens star, alongside Israel Jimenez, Eric Boudreau, and Ricky Araiza.
