So proud of friend, mentor & fellow #PowerLatino, acclaimed playwright @LuisAlfaro, whose play, #MojadaMedeaLA will be debuting at the #GettyVilla's outdoor theater! 👏🏻 If you're in #LA make sure to add this to your "Must Watch" list between September 10th thru October 3rd. 🙌🏻 This play, like all of Luis's work, is #artivism at it's finest, which is why performing in one of his plays is at the top of my #bucketlist!! 🙈 Until then, you'll find me front and center eager to take in his work. "Alfaro's gripping contemporary take on the ancient Greek myth of #Medea tackles the complexities of family, tradition, culture, and the explosive moment when they all collide." 💋//#LizzaOnTheGo #Immigration

Fellow #powerlatina & my dear comadre @RaqC & I had a blast walking around the #GettyVilla & touring the set of the upcoming production of @LuisAlfaro's #MojadaMedeaLA. The play, which is a reimagining of Euripide's #Medea transported to East Los Angeles, will be performed in the Getty Villa's outdoor amphitheater Sept. 10 - Oct. 3rd. I can't wait for opening night. 💋 xo, L // #LizzaOnTheGo
Closing Night of MOJADA: A MEDEA IN LOS ANGELES.
Con La Estrella: Sabina Zùñiga Varela.
This woman's Artistry during this production, in the title role of "Medea": courageous, generous, passionate, fierce, ever-evolving, otherworldly, beautiful, and special, transcendent. Beyond belief.
I saw this show 11 times. Every time I watched her, it was different: she experienced her heartwrenching story anew each night -- bravely and relentlessly finding, developing, unearthing, and sharing more of her "Medea", opening up every part of herself to tell Her Story.
Every night I sat on those stone steps, under the stars, at the Getty Villa, I was witness to the bravest, most creatively ambitious, and most fearless actor I have ever seen, with more color, detail, power, and emotion being embodied and expressed, in both subtle and very Greek ways.
This woman played for the Gods and Goddesses, every single night, reaching virtuosic and divine levels in her last handful of performances. She made us gasp, hold our breath, smile, laugh, and cry more times than we could count. She made us feel: for her, for her family, for her story, for all the women in the world like her.
She achieved the ultimate success of an actor: she told a vital story, she moved hearts and minds and spirits, and she gave the voiceless a voice.
For as long as I can remember, I have been in awe and so proud of this woman's work in MOJADA. Her endless and overflowing well of love, talent, generosity, investment, strength, and bravery help her soar beyond everyday actor and into the realm of divine artist. She has been the greatest inspiration to me, to her brilliant MOJADA team, and to the many patrons and artistic professionals fortunate enough to come out and bathe in her Brilliant Light on those marble stages in Malibu.
Congratulations to you, Sabina, my ❤️, for shining so brightly during this demanding journey. You are nothing short of divine. Your spirit knows no bounds. Your potential and strength are endless.
Finally, I must say thank you to all who came out, from near and far, to support this incredible woman. What a gift she has in you. ❤️❤️❤️ #mojadamedeaLA#lathr#gettyvilla
