Revoltosa—The Troublemaker , now playing at GALA Hispanic Theatre ---is a compelling and lyrical “slice of life” with multiple layers of interest for just about any thinking and feeling human being who is willing to entertain the idea that life is full of mystery, contradictions and certain universal elemental truths about human nature.  This highly amusing (and often moving) yet insightful production (sub-titled as “Variations on the 1897 zarzuela for today”) is given a zesty and comically on-target interpretation by a committed ensemble under the Direction of José Luis Arellano.
