  • Neuhaus Theatre

  • Misa Fronteriza runs approximately 1 hour and 25 minutes with no intermission.


Gorguz Teatro & Universiteatro's Misa Fronteriza (Border Mass) is a satirical comedy about life near the US-Mexico border.  Structured like a Catholic mass, the performance reflects upon and confronts the difficult realities about the border with sharp humor and a compelling point of view. Travelling from Monterrey, Mexico, the play will be performed  in Spanish with live simultaneous English translations at venues across Houston.

Along with the production, Alley Theatre will present a comprehensive array of engagement activities including: an online “Re-sourced” guide, interactive lobby displays, pre-show performances from local musicians, post-show talk backs with the artists, and a panel discussion with community leaders.
