If you've missed all our shows and want a mid-summer taste of Mangos, come through and check us out! We're excited to be at YBCA in partnership with Dwayne Calizo and Mama Calizo's Voice Factory to bring you this cabaret-style night of story, sounds, and reveals! Seating in the theater is limited, but the show will be broadcast for all to see on a wall of television screens in the main lobby area of YBCA.

The Mangos With Chili crew is aching to give you another night of unforgettable performance on queer and trans people of color stories of survival, resistance, lust, ghosts and dreams through our high intensity theater, dance, drag, burlesque and words.
