Our Lady of the Underpass
The same week that Rome announced a new Pope, a woman driving home from work spotted an image of the Virgin Mary on a discolored wall of the Fullerton Avenue underpass. Inspired by real life interviews, playwright Tanya Saracho renders the voices of those who were drawn to that wall, exploring issues of faith and desire in present day Chicago.
The play features original cast members: Charin Alvarez (Teatro Vista Ensemble and seen in 16th Streetâs Kita y Fernanda also by Tanya Saracho), Chris Catelmi (seen in 16th Streetâs The Last Barbecue by Brett Neveu), Suzette Mayobre (Fernanda in 16th Streetâs Kita y Fernanda), Rosie Newton, and Juan Gabriel Ruiz (Teatro Vista Junior Ensemble)
