Teatro Máscara Mágica (TMM), will now present "Journey of the Skeletons" as the second project of its residency, replacing the previously-announced "Misa Azteca: A Prophetic Poem Fulfilled." The piece, written by Max Branscomb and directed by TMM Artistic Director William Virchis, will run June 11 – 22 in the Playhouse’s Theodore and Adele Shank Theatre.
In "Journey of the Skeletons," when Memo, a Latino Angel, invites his friends back to Earth to visit his family's altar, they have to trek through dangerous Mictlan, the Aztec underworld. Their perilous but uplifting journey leads them to a conflict with the deadly Aztec prince of darkness, the evil Miclantecuhtli!
