Readers’ Theatre’s Ripcord is The Odd Couple meets The Golden Girls


By David Johanssen

San Miguel premiere! Readers’ Theater presents a live performance of Ripcord, the hilarious story of two widows determined to compete for queen of their retirement home with, as the New York Times tells it, “a series of increasingly elaborate practical jokes, some of which verge on the downright sadistic.” You’ll howl with laughter at this tale of seniors, sure to remind you of Neil Simon at his best! This is directed by Marjorie Burren and stars local favorites David Galitzky, Gina Giampaoli, Stephen Huey, Chris Kapilla—with Marjorie Burren and Lynn Edwards as the dueling duo.

“There’s not a comic setup that isn’t balanced by a payoff. These elements combine into a perfectly enjoyable evening,” said the New York Times. There are just two performances: March 30th at 7:00pm and Saturday, March 31st at 3:00pm, both for 100 pesos, which includes a drink. Tickets are available at the Biblioteca gift shop Tesoros.

The guilty pleasure you’ve been waiting for is finally back in SMA as Frans Bloem, award-winning cabaret artist from Europe and New York, returns to Shelter Theater with his new and naughty show, “Kabarett Beyond Borders.” This season, Frans is accompanied by renowned musical director Uriel Orozco and surprise guest artist “Maxim,” whom you’ll have to see to believe! Please join us for an unforgettable evening of authentic European ‘kabarett’!

Tom Driscoll and Dave Bingham have been rocking San Miguel since their inspired jam in 2014. With over 45 years combined in the music biz, opening for acts like The Rolling Stones, The Animals, and The Beach Boys Shelter is honored to have them onstage this Wednesday, accompanied by renowned guitarist Chuy Sanchez, Fernando on bass, and “El Tigre” on the cajon. Tickets for all shows available at Biblioteca gift shop Tesoros and online at
