Los Otros is an exploration, through dramatic staging and lushly poetic song cycles, of the common life experiences that bind seemingly unrelated human beings together: wars, love affairs, work, mortality.
“Threads of whimsy and irony are woven throughout…tenderly observant…”
“...a silken production…”
- LA Stage Times
