Deck the halls with guacamole! Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la! ’Tis the season to be jolly! If you think your holidays with relatives were dramatic, then fasten your seat belts for a new holiday entertainment coming your way!
In The Latina Christmas Special three first generation Latinas get together to dish about everything from moms to cucarachas to Farrah Fawcett in a no holds barred evening holiday soirée as they relive some of their very personal Christmas stories (and fantasies) of holidays past shared with families and loved ones. The show is a series of holiday memories told through the eyes of three comedic actresses: Diana Yanez, a Cuban American from Miami (of Hollywood; Margaret Cho’s The Sensuous Woman), Sandra Valls, a Mexican American from Laredo, TX (of Altadena; Showtime’s Latin Divas of Comedy), and Maria Russell, the daughter of an over-dedicated Mexican mother and a compliant Lithuanian father (of Studio City; FX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) helmed by director Geoffrey Rivas, founding member of LTC (of Culver City; director of the NAACP award-winning solo show Beautiful; selected acting credits include La Bamba, CSI – Las Vegas, TNT’s Murder in the First).
