Fandango for Butterflies (and Coyotes)

This play depicts a fandango, which is a lively, spontaneous, communal musical celebration as practiced by immigrants from Latin America who have brought the tradition to New York. It had already opened at La MaMa (my review) when it had to shut down. Now En Garde Arts is bringing it online starting today. Tickets: $15, or $10 for students
