¿¡Que Nuevas!? – What’s New!? (1994)

¿¡Qué Nuevas!? – What’s New!?, Latina Theatre Lab’s first Original Musical Comedy, examined stereotypes within the Entertainment Industry through the varied experiences of eleven Latina actresses. With Carmen Miranda as an icon, interwoven with video interviews of the performers, this work explores self-image, self-doubt, and finally self-acceptance by dropping the mask and singing "Mamá yo quiero!"
