About the show

Latinx theater company IATI Theater Todo Vanguardia presents their 50th Anniversary production, an imaginative, genre-hopping allegorical drama examining the legacy of state terrorism in Latin America.  More…

The Haberdasher, The Girl Bellboy, and The Queen of Anvondalia are the only remaining inhabitants of the Grand Hotel (in the capitol city of an unnamed South American country) that was abandoned in the wake of the recent revolution.
