Musical. Book and lyrics by Quiara Alegría Hudes. Music by Bill Sherman.
Cast: 3m., 4w. Spunky 9-year-old Ana is faced with a very big decision. On the one hand, as her alter-ego, Barrio Grrrl, with her invisible sidekick, Amazing Voice, she's pretty busy preserving justice in the barrio and protecting her neighborhood. On the other hand, in the world where Ana lives with her abuelo and misses her mom who is far, far away in Iraq, reality is sneaking up on her. It's time for Ana to decide what/s most important: being a superhero or a girl who works little miracles in real life. Pulitzer Prize- and Tony-winner Quiara Alegría Hudes and Grammy and Tony-winner Bill Sherman give audiences a funny and warmly truthful play that will make hearts sing. One ext., one int. set. Approximate running time: 1 hour.
