Borracho: Spanish for Drunken Bum by Abe Zapata Jr. makes its debut at the Actors Company for two weekends from January 31st to February 9th. Over the last year Borracho has been performed and refined through multiple stage readings in Los Angeles and a successful run at the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2019, winning Q Youth Productions a No Room in the Green Room Award sponsored by MB Stage Productions.
Join the gayest party this winter and gasp at the drama, laugh at the shade and reads, and as audiences have put it, become a "fly on the wall" for a hot mess of a birthday party.

Synopsis: Miguel invites a select group of friends, including an old high school crush, over for his friend Gerardo's birthday. His plans for the night are quickly derailed as the alcohol flows, surprise visitors show up, and secrets are revealed.

Reviews

As an ensemble, the cast presents a palpable energy as a believable group of friends. This group dynamic acts as the foundation for many of the comedic moments in a production in which humor is easily the strongest element.

Borracho: Spanish for Drunken Bum is poignant and witty comedy that tackles serious issues about masculinity, femininity, inclusion as well as self acceptance in the LGBTQ community. The actors represent the wide range of the gay spectrum with a flare of "Latinidad" which tackles the racial divide amongst queer representation. For an hour and a half I was drawn in to their twisted lives all while making connections to my own Chicano queer experience which evoked a wide range of emotions, from laughter to tears to regret. A show that can reach audiences with a wide range of experiences and identities.

I loved Borracho: Spanish for Drunken Bum! As a cis-gender gay man, it's an important show that encourages us to embrace our inner femininity. Growing up, I was always bullied and told to "butch it up". This is an inspiring show that features important issues on body positivity, femininity, toxic masculinity, and drag phobia. A must-see!
