In ‘Looking for Violeta’ Quantum Theatre Finds a Fascinating Musical – Entertainment Central

By August 16, 2019Uncategorized

Quantum Theatre, under the direction of Artistic Director Karla Boos, took a big risk with this production. They created this musical from the ground up. The idea came when Boos and her longtime friend and collaborator Carolina Loyola-Garcia were attending a theater festival in Santiago, Chile, and were staying with Loyola-Garcia’s family (she is a native of Chile). Loyola-Garcia’s sister Gloria drove them around Santiago and on those drives played music on the car’s stereo. Boos was especially enthralled with the music of Chilean folk legend Violeta Parra. Gloria suggested that Boos develop a play about Parra. And that’s just what she did. -Rick Handler, Entertainment Central
