A Sign from the Taco Gods
The Overtime Theater and TacoTown Theatre Company proudly present the world-premiere production of A Sign from the Taco Gods, an autobiographical, solo play written and performed by Jade Esteban Estrada. After two summer workshop performances at Jump-Start Performance Co. and the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, respectively, Estrada will finish the year with the world-premiere presentation of A Sign from the Taco Gods, a show he feels best represents the triumphs and tragedies hes experienced during his life and career.
A Sign from the Taco Gods, a show about resolving unresolved relationships, focuses primarily on the complicated relationship he has with his mother. The show, which features Estrada singing music from The Beatles, Barry Manilow and Judy Garland songbooks, takes his audience on a time-traveling journey of the triumphs and tragedies of his life and career which has included performances all over the world. Presented in the style of a stand-up comedy masterclass, Estrada speaks openly about his childhood, his family, the discovery of his talent and his whirlwind career highlights that will theatrically take audience members from the bustling backdrops of New York and London to places as far away as Japan and Australia.
[An] excellent performance! raves former District 6 City Councilwoman Delicia Herrera. A Sign from the Taco Gods is a show about the positive and negative experiences that build us who we are. Theres no better way to spend a relaxing and entertaining evening than to witness talent. A must-see!
The show is relatable because most people have dysfunctional family relationships like this, explains Melissa Martinez, former Associate Commissioner for the Mayors Commission on the Status of Women. I was drawn to what Jade was learning about life throughout the show. Hearing his story helped me learn about myself.
