Experiencing the bilingual musical “Dancing in My Cockroach Killers” at GALA Hispanic Theatre is like walking through a city. Sometimes you run into a street festival, swirling with color and sound. Sometimes you run across a sight that’s bleak or poignant — a desolate alley or suffering person. Sometimes you arrive at a construction site that’s pulsing with energy, where looming cranes ­suggest a present hurtling into the future. - The Washington Post 

"Gritty and lyrical, edgy and memorable!" - The Washington Post


"It reminded the audience that theater can not only be fun, entertaining, and a great night out, it can also be thought-provoking and rebellious" - DC Metro
