Juan Villa’s award winning and Jeff nominated show returns to the Chicago stage. Empanada for a Dream transports the audience to Allen Street, in New York’s Lower East Side, everybody’s blasting music – bacchata, merengue and salsa. Everybody’s cooking – plantains, arapas, and empanadas. Boys play baseball and football on the street while the most beautiful girl watches from a window. In his living memoir Juan Francisco Villa uncovers the treasures of his family’s dark legacy.
