Venezuelan TV, stage and film star Eliana Lopez returns to the stage with her new one-woman show, What is the Scandal?/¿Cuál es el Escándalo? Presented in both Spanish and English at San Francisco’s historic Victoria Theatre, Lopez’s solo show centers around a highly charged 2012 political scandal involving her husband, San Francisco sheriff Ross Mirkarimi. Throughout the fast-paced show, Lopez portrays a dozen characters, leading audiences through the adventures of her youth in her native Venezuela, the culture shock of moving to the U.S., and the unexpected twists in her family’s lives as a result of a marital feud that ends up having political repercussions. It’s a journey of self-transformation, as well as an engrossing study in media, gender and politics – all expressed via Eliana Lopez’s singular voice.
