Lucha Teotl set for Goodman Theatre
Will the forces of light prevail over darkness? Masked luchadores representing Aztec gods vie for domination in Lucha Teotl-a no-holds-barred, 90-minute thrill ride about family, honor, tradition and redemption, written and directed by Christopher Llewyn Ramirez and Jeff Colangelo. A full-sized professional wrestling ring and a 15-foot-high Aztec calendar set the stage for the heart-pumping action, transforming the Goodman Theatre's 350-seat flexible Owen Theatre into an immersive space that encourages audience participation.
Co-creator Christopher Llewyn Ramirez added, "Chicago is one of the pro-wrestling capitals in the United States-so it's no surprise that the Goodman's casting team found the unbelievable artists needed to bring Lucha Teotl to life. We could not be more excited to celebrate Latinidad, theater and pro-wrestling-all under the same roof!"
