Ivan Menchell's The Cemetery Club will begin previews Apr. 17 at Mexico City's Teatro San Jeronimo for an Apr. 24 opening night. The show's title in Spanish is La Muchachas del Club, which means in English The Girls From the Club.
Maria Victoria, Ofelia Guilmain and Magda Guzman are the stars of this comedy, in which audiences learn that the best times are always ahead-even when you are over 60. Luis Gimeno and Maristel Molina complete the cast.
Singer/Comedian Maria Victoria is probably best known for her performance as "Inocencia" in the popular TV series of "La Criada Bien Criada". Victoria has also starred in more than 40 films, and her songs from the 50's can still be heard today.
Guilmain has starred in dozens of shows, from classic Greek tragedies to Spanish and Mexican comedies. Her TV and film career is also very extensive. The "third girl in the club", Magda Guzman, has also a very impressive career in theatre; she starred in the Mexican premiere of Deathtrap with Manolo Fabregas, and has appeared in multiple soap-operas including "La Usurpadora", which currently airs at Televisa's Channel 2.
Jose Sole (Moon Over Buffalo, Lend Me a Tenor), one of Mexico's most acclaimed theatre and opera directors, is back directing this play, which is produced by Jorge Estevez and Roberto Garza Leal. Information on ticket prices and the schedule for Las Muchachas del Club will be available shortly.
