April Shows, Come Get It!


Helloooooo, April! As the cold weather is starting to recede, we're welcoming spring with these great shows below! Be sure to check it out! Normally we don't recommend Broadway shows but Dede is a real one so be sure to check out her big debut at Studio 54! Also, big THANK YOU to Monet Hurst-Mendoza for filling in for Maria!

*PSSST! I was able to use a promo code "PPLMVR18" for Miss You Like Hell to get $30 (no fee) tickets.* 


@ The Public Theater until May 6

After reading Olivia's suicidal blog post, her estranged mother, Beatriz, travels to Philadelphia to pick her up from school and bring her back to California for a week. As the two journey west, what ostensibly began as a mother trying to help her daughter gets turned upside down when Olivia discovers that her mother is facing deportation. It is now Olivia that must help Beatriz but will she? Can she?
