“CRITIC’S CHOICE - a damn funny show; now it's firing on all cylinders” – Brian Nemtusak w/The Reader

MEXICAN WRESTLING MACBETH - Every Saturday Night in June and July, it is a party at the Zoo Studios Luchadore Style as The Chicago Mammals present MEXICAN WRESTLING MACBETH!

What happens when Mexico’s favorite lady luchadores have to fight it out over the coveted role of Lady Macbeth!!! Mayhem, Mystery, and Aztec Mummies will rise from beyond the grave!

SeƱor Director (played by Company Member Dennis Frymire) has secured the funds to produce his very first Mexican Shakespearean Cinema Extravaganza. But in order to keep the cameras rolling, his movie’s producers insist that he cast the film using only Mexico’s favorite superstar luchadores. The femme fatale known as La Diabla Azul (played by Company Member Gabe Garza) will stop at nothing in order to defeat her competition and become Mexico’s First and Only Lady Macbeth! Come see art imitate life imitate art as La Diabla Azul becomes the incarnation of Lady Macbeth both on screen and in the haunted catacombs of the Aztec mummy’s lair!

Mexican Wrestling Macbeth is a wonderfully creative, funny romp of a time. It's a completely fun way to spend your Saturday evening. I gotta say the lip synch adds so much humor to this play. A most interesting deconstruction of Shakespeare, for sure. Go Mammals...

Mexican Wrestling Macbeth is a funny, creative romp of a play... a wonderful way to spend your Saturday evening. I got more laughs out of lip synching and some male>female, female>male drag action in this play. A great Shakespeare send up. Go Mammals...
