THE COPLA MUSICAL
The Copla Musical tells the compelling story of drag artist La Gitana, who escaped Franco’s dictatorship in Spain to become a variety star in America in 1940. La Gitana’s story mirrors that of a young man setting out on a journey of self-acceptance, inspired by La Gitana's remarkable experiences.
This solo show shares the passion and subversion of Spanish Copla exploring what it takes to come to terms with who you are born to be.
