REVIEWS

so go the ghosts of méxico, part one is an incredibly moving play that successfully brings the fear, loss and tragedy that has happened so far away from New York City quite literally to the main stage.” – Exeunt Magazine, Read More 

"Chilling...persistently haunting...audacious, almost novelistic script." ‐The New York Times, Read More 

"In so go the ghosts of méxico, while [Olmos'] talent with language still resonates and the mixing of realities prevails, his sense of timing becomes yet another feather in his hat. The humor in so go the ghosts… is timed to perfection. It lightens up the heaviness of the atmosphere and flows quite effortlessly through the absurdity of the situation at hand." - Theatre Jones, Read More 

"...fantastical...poetic...a tantalizing premise that sets the  stage for Olmos' [next] show. - Dallas Morning News, Read More


so go the ghosts of méxico, part one was first produced by La MaMa e.t.c. in New York City on April 11, 2013; Artistic Director Mia Yoo, Producing Director Beverly Petty. It was directed by Meiyin Wang.
