‘Tumbao’ Brings Chicago Gentrification And Latino Cultural Identity To The Stage

The last time we spoke to Wendy Mateo and Lorena Diaz on Morning Shift, they were kicking off their acting careers after gaining popularity with their Youtube skits

Now, the Chicago comedy duo known as Dominizuelan have a new play showing at the Steppenwolf Theater called Tumbao

Morning Shift talks with Lorena and Wendy about how the play tackles gentrification, cultural identity and everyday conversations in Latino families…all while making you laugh.
