Fri 11/28 - Sun 11/30
Las Nuevas Tamaleras


Like the tamale-making gatherings that inspired it, Las Nuevas Tamaleras is a colorful yuletide tradition seasoned with plenty of local flavor. Penned by Brownsville native Alicia Mena in 1990 and first presented in San Antonio in 1993, the one-act comedy paints a comical portrait of three Latinas struggling to make their first ever batch of tamales with assistance from the spirits of veteran tamaleras Doña Mercedes and Doña Juanita. A must for diehard fans, Saturday’s Reception Night ($45) features dinner, drinks and live music by Conjunto Heritage Taller founder Rodolfo Lopez. $12-$45, 8pm Fri-Sat, 3pm Sun, Guadalupe Theater, 1301 Guadalupe, (210) 271-3151, tamaleras.com. —Bryan Rindfuss
