Theatre in the Colonial Pueblo of Patzcuaro

Theatre in Patzcuaro -Teatro en Patzcuaro
Te juro Juana que tengo ganas
(I swear, Juana, that I have an itch for you)

Play by Emilio Carballido

Patzcuaro is full of surprises, you just have to figure out by the tortuous chayote-vine where and when to find them. The Grupo Echeri Teatro (echeri means our land in Purhepecha) is performing Emilio Carballido’s comedy in April and May 2007, under the auspices of CEDRAM (Centro Dramatico de Michoacan). We saw the play. It was entertaining--and funny! A good parody.

The small, simple theatre adjacent to CREFAL on Avenida Lazaro Cardenas is a cozy venue. The grounds are lovely, and I enjoy these gatherings of Patzcuarense audience and actors.
