Anita, a musical staged reading, centers Latina characters and pays homage to the intermingling of the Southwest borderlands with cumbia, bolero, jazz, and R&B pop fusions.
Anita, like the other girls at Southwest Skies youth shelter, has been separated from her parents at the border. Trying to find them, Anita stumbles into Luz Dorada, a charismatic PR executive at the shelter’s PR blitz. Anita’s exuberance wins Luz over, and she eventually signs on to help, but they must get past Miss Guardia’s watchful eye and the rules she stands for.
Anita is a timeless tale of resilience and hope against all odds and highlights the power of community.
