While ambitious in its scope and enthusiasm, Tortillo!
ultimately falls short of its potential success by relying more upon the outlandishness of its comedy than any traditional sense of plot. At times, this outlandishness overshadows whatever the author's original intent must have been in conceiving the production. Where, in a mystery, one would ordinarily expect to find a sequence of clues leading to a resolution, the audience of Tortillo!
is left instead to decipher the play's meaning through a series of disjointed dialogues held together by profanity. The profanity would be nowhere near as noticeable, however, if there was a discernible plot through which the audience could interpret it. Friday, 9 p.m.; Saturday, 6 p.m.; Sunday, 1:30 p.m.
