ABOUT THE PLAY GROWING UP GONZALES:
“GROWING UP GONZALES is a comedy with drama in two acts. It’s the story of two brothers in search of each other. It’s a play about brotherly love and forgiveness.
When 49-year-old Johnny Gonzales (played by Andres “Chulisi” Rodriguez) is forced to clean out his estranged deceased brother Cisco’s apartment, he stumbles upon Cisco’s secret memoirs. Touched by these stories of their past, Johnny decides to share them with the rest of the world or anyone willing to listen; no matter how embarrassing they might be.
Growing up Gonzales has been entertaining audiences from all walks of life for over three years. This story crosses all cultural and ethnic lines and lands right in your heart. If you’ve ever lost a loved one, don’t miss Growing Up Gonzales.” (source taken from Growing Up Gonzales)
