Director Karla Boos Discusses Quantum Theatre’s World Premiere Production of “Looking for Violeta” -Pittsburgh Owl Scribe

By August 16, 2019Uncategorized

Q: Karla, in the show’s program booklet, you mention that the idea for the play came about during a January 2017 visit to Santiago, Chile with friend and long time collaborator, Carolina Loyola-Garcia while attending a theater festival. As Loyola-Garcia’s sister, Gloria, was driving you around town playing Parra’s  music on the radio, she had a flash of inspiration and suggested a collaborative creation of a work devoted to Parra. Had you heard of the Chilean songstress before your visit to Chile and what was your immediate reaction to Gloria’s suggestion? Did you hesitate and what were some of the considerations that you explored before committing to the work? -Dave Zuchowski, Pittsburgh Owl Scribe
