Stephanie Trudeau Becoming Chavela



Iconic Mexican singer Chavela Vargas – a trailblazer who constantly broke the mold – was edgy in the 1990s and is totally relevant today because her story pushes so many hot topic buttons: gender issues, gay rights, immigration and Mexican culture. Songs of lust and longing and stories of her friendships with Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Liz Taylor and Pedro Almodóvar will intrigue and entertain you. Definitely a woman of substance. Becoming Chavela is a docu-cabaret performance of Chavela’s life and music, set within the art world and social milieu of mid-century Mexico City.
