The first incarnation of this show--a collection of short pieces about the drive-you-crazy vicissitudes of being young and Latina in the city--was a hit for Teatro Luna in 2007. Now the company has brought it back with some new material, and it should be a hit again. There's not a lot that's out-and-out revelatory here--except maybe in the interlude where some women describe their weirdest sexual idiosyncrasies. But practically everything, from tales of jealousy to memories of abuse to explosions over fender-benders, gets a vivid spin. The charm quotient is high, and so are the production values: it's something of a shock to see precisely choreographed production numbers--featuring twirled umbrellas, no less--on a stage as small as the one on which this show unfolds. --Tony Adler
