    1.) When the matriarch of the Gonzalez family is diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer, her loved ones rally around her. They try to convince Josefina to think outside the box and take a chance on a clinic in
    Houston, Texas that has been successfully treating terminal cancer patients like herself. The play uses 90s pop culture, snippets music and dance as the setting takes place in Queens, NY in a time when "Googling" was not yet a verb and good old-fashioned hard copy research and faith propels the family to a life saving decision.

    2.) What is it about cancer that makes people laugh? Nothing you say? Maybe this new play by Anna Capunay can make you dance, laugh and think about you choices involving cancer treatments. So let's go back in time to Queens, NY in the 1990s when you, your family and your friends were dancing to new and classic Salsa, Merengue and Latin Pop!
