ARENA STAGE - - “Destiny of Desire”

     Imagine taking your favorite television soap opera and turning it into a stage play. This is called a telenova or that’s what’s playing at the Arena Stage in D.C. Award winning playwright Karen Zacarias has written a telenova called, “Destiny of Desire.” Think “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Dynasty” with music.  The play takes place in a Mexican desert town and is hot with Latin lovers, campy intrigue and great music. The wide divide between the wealthy and the poor and the morality (or lack of it)  of each is front and center. “Destiny of Desire” is really a lot of fun and provides a very entertaining evening at the theatre. And, what an ensemble cast of actors!! Great direction by José Luis Valenzuela, wonderful music coordination by Rosino Serrano and delightful choreography by Robert Barry Fleming, You’ll enjoy this show!! For tickets, call 202-488-3300 and check the website at The show runs 
through Oct 18.
