“Poignant, funny and moving -
A magical evening of intimate live theater on South Beach!”

“It's 1966, it's Brooklyn, it's Acapulco. Meet Doris, a soon to be divorced New Yorker, her frisky boyfriend who dyes his chest hair, a mysterious woman who’s really a man, her penny-pinching liar of a husband, a scheming laundress mother-in-law, and the Whore of Brooklyn. A swinging 1960’s kind of comedy with a 2011 point of view. “

Evan HandlerACAPULCO by New York writer Jacquelyn Reingold (HBO's In Treatmeni) and featuring L.A.-based Evan Handler (Sex and the CityCalifornication) and N.Y. -based Nadia Dajani (The Big C & Ugly Betty) with South Florida Actors, Amy McKenna (South Beach Babylon & SoBe Arts' Twelfth Nigh), Elayne Wilks, Ryan George, Brian McCormack and Glen Lawrence.
