Do we have to grow up?
Spunky 9-year-old Ana is faced with this very big decision. On the one hand, as her alter-ego Barrio Grrrl with her invisible sidekick Amazing Voice, she's pretty busy preserving justice in the barrio and protecting her neighborhood. On the other hand, in the world where Ana lives with her abuelo (grandfather) and misses her mom who is far, far away in Iraq, reality is sneaking up on her. It's time for Ana to decide what's most important: being a superhero or a girl who works little miracles in real life. Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony Award nominee Quiara Alegría Hudes (In the Heights) and Grammy-winning music director for PBS's new Electric Company Bill Sherman give audiences a funny and warmly truthful play that will make hearts sing. For age 9 and up.
