The Argentine production of Tom Ziegler's comedy Grace and Glorie (Gracia y Gloria) opened July 22 at the Del Globo Theatre in Buenos Aires.

In the Argentine production, the title roles will be played by Lydia Lamaison (Lost in Yonkers) and Marta Bianchi. The production is directed by Julio Baccaro and the sets are by Maria Julia Bertotto.
