If it's Christmas, it is time for "Too Many Tamales", an annual holiday show in a working'class neighborhood that has developed a dedicated following with its homage to bi-culturalism. Rendered from the book by Gary Soto, "Too Many Tamales", the audience laughs when Mr. Cormack butchers his Spanish trying to make a connection with his in-laws. Mama explains the Latino tradition of making tamales at Christmastime. Laughter fills the theater as Maria and her cousins consume dozens of tamales trying to find a lost ring. Every family has some little bit of dysfunction and tension around Christmas and Thanksgiving. The play keeps it light and fun as it deals with the theme of giving in a different culture. A show about family, holiday traditions and multi-generations.
