Laughter, the American Dream and a real-life story to be at center of performance April 23 at Lewis University

Published: April 3, 2013.

Lewis University will host “Living Large in a Mini Kind of Way,” as the last performance in the university’s Performing Arts Series. The sassy comedic drama will be held at 7:30 p.m. April 23 in the Philip Lynch Theatre, located at the university’s main campus in Romeoville.

The hilarious and sharp exploration of the American Dream focuses on two sets of Mexican-American sisters; one assimilated into U.S. mainstream culture, the other still struggling with their immigration status. Mingling a lively comedy with a thought-provoking atypical immigration drama, Los Angeles-based Obie Award-winning Playwright Diane Rodriguez illuminates pressing, universal issues about identity and privilege. Based on a real-life story, “Living Large” is presented in English with a sprinkle of Spanish. The high-energy performance is directed by Ann Filmer. It includes Amanda delaGuardia and Miranda Gonzalez as cast members.

Admission to the event is $10. Tickets can be purchased at the door or by calling (815) 836-5500.
