Interweaving recollections of her revolutionary life in Chile under Augusto Pinochet's regime with her fleeting attempts to realize a "vision" of love in Los Angeles, Carmen Aguirre's one-woman show Blue Box is a fiery proclamation of carnal yearning and social conviction. As ever, Aguirre is assertive, sexy, and wryly political, sharing the sacrifices of her life with humor and courage.
