Priscilla Lopez-Led SOMEWHERE Opens Tonight at TheatreWorks
TheatreWorks presents Priscilla Lopez in the Giovanna Sardelli-helmed SOMEWHERE, playing Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, January 16 through February 10. She'll be joined on stage by Michael Rosen, Leo Ash Evens, Eddie Gutierrez and Michelle Cabinian.
Set in 1959, Matthew Lopez's moving and funny new play follows one New York City family's attempt to make its fantasy a reality. Inez Candelaria and her three children dream of a life in show business. When they learn that their home is being torn down to make way for Lincoln Center-and that the filming of West Side Story will take place on the streets of their demolished neighborhood-they must fight for their dreams as their world crumbles around them.
Broadway veteran Priscilla Lopez stars as Inez, the headstrong matriarch of the Candelaria family who struggles to achieve her family's dream of show business success. Lopez was nominated for a Tony Award for the role of Diana in the original Broadway cast of A Chorus Line, introducing the hit song "What I Did for Love" in the landmark musical. She won the Tony Award for her performance in A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine. Her other Broadway credits include In the Heights, Anna in the Tropics, Nine, Lysistrata, Pippin, Company and Henry, Sweet Henry.
