If Lily Tomlin and Hunter Thompson had a love child and she was raised Latina, you’d have someone a lot like Tina D’Elia. Her imagination is unbridled, her characters are flawless, her freedom from conventions of gender is dizzying and humor is outrageous. And this is all wrapped around a nutritious core of history.
— David Ford, Solo Performer Master Teacher

Overlooked Latinas received funding from the Zellerbach Family Foundation and Theatre Bay Area.
