On November 30, the Cochise College Little Theater at Douglas Campus hosted Desvariaciones de la Cancion Mexicana, a musical show that deals with the problem of illegal immigration to the United States with a sense of humor. The show was presented by Verania Lucero, singer and actress and Hector Acosta, pianist, arranger and music director, both from Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico.

In the show, Lucero does the roll of “La Madre Patria” and narrates the story of one of her sons “Vicente Mario” an illegal immigrant that crosses the border looking for the American dream; making fun of the Mexican culture and the transformation of his everyday life into the Mexican-American culture.
The message is presented through a series of popular Mexican songs but arranged by Acosta with a touch of the American Blues and Jazz styles.
