Argentinian musical includes Roxette songs in Spanish

“Eh… No se cómo decirlo” (Eh … I do not know how to say) is a musical based on the Nirvana and Roxette’s songs. This play is being run at the Tabarís theatre in Buenos Aires and now is about to tour the country and Uruguay. The newspapers La Nacion, Pagina 12, La Razon and Perfl wrote pretty good and favorable reviews in the last few days.

The cast of this work consists of Agustina “Sekou” Falliace, Diego Koran and Leo Bosio who supported the project. The plot is about three friends – Luis, Mariana and Martin. Mariana and Luis are getting married. Martin and Mariana are going to meet for the first time. The three of them have something in common, but they do not know how to say it. “Eh … I do not know how to say” is the story of three people who take decisions with the powerful influence of music: Roxette’s melodic pop and Nirvana’s rock. Is life like in their songs?

The idea of “Eh … I do not know how to say” came from the actor, director and playwriter Leo Bosio and his research about lyrics and music dichotomy. “We closed the play at the Tabarís theatre and we wanted to go national. We arranged a tour and went to Cordoba, now in Rosario, soon in Montevideo, Mendoza and Buenos Aires” said Leo Bosio to Viarosario.com.

Thanks to Arnaldo Mariano Suarez for sending this though.
