Death Defying Acts, the trilogy of plays by Woody Allen, Elaine May and David Mamet, will open in June at the Teatro Fernando Soler in Mexico City. Anna Silvetti and Arturo Beristain are now confirmed in the cast, and the director of the show will be Norberto Bogart, who is back in Mexico after studying theatre in New York. Death Defying Acts will be produced by Fela Fabregas, the widow of one of Mexico's most celebrated actors, Manolo Fabregas, who also produced the Mexican versions of My Fair Lady, Fiddler on the Roof, Kismet, Dracula, Deathtrap, Promises, Promises, Man of la Mancha and many others. The Fabregas family owns nine major theatres in Mexico City.
The title of the show in Spanish has not been defined yet, but Mrs. Fabregas said that Saltos Mortales and Humores Que Matan are some of the titles she is considering.
