CLATA Will Present Puerto Rican Star Marian Pabón in Sola En La Pandemia Está Cañón

The Chicago Latino Theater Alliance (CLATA) has invited popular Puerto Rican actor and comedian Marian Pabón to bring some much-needed comic relief to Chicago with Sola en la Pandemia está Cañón (Being Alone in a Pandemic is Hard), her new one-woman show about how she survived the pandemic.

The madness of lockdown, masks, hand sanitizer, social distancing, face shields, gloves, serological and molecular tests, five baths a day, and to top it all off, the celibacy.

Pabón will look back at all that and more with a dose of humor in Sola en la Pandemia está Cañón, live, one show only, Saturday, June 19 at 7 p.m. at Joe's Bar, 940 W. Weed St., in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood. Tickets, $25, are on sale now. For tickets and information, visit clata.org.

Note: Sola en la Pandemia está Cañón will be presented in Spanish. The Bobby Delgado Latin Jazz Trio will perform after the show.

"It's been a long year, so Chicago's Latino community? Here's your chance to go to a live event again and laugh out loud with Pabón's new show about the all-too-familiar situations we've all learned to live with the past 14 months," said Myrna Salazar, Co-Founder and Executive Director, CLATA, producer of the annual Destinos-Chicago International Latino Theater Festival.

Sola en la Pandemia está Cañón, directed and produced by Julio Ramos, is presented by CLATA in association with Mike Oquendo Events.
