Bilingual version of a Cuban and Puerto Rican folk tale. Martina is a beautiful, hardworking, dancing cockroach. She longs to be asked to the dance to find her true love. Through the help of her grandmother’s secret “coffee test” she finds her ideal mate, proving that good friendship is a good basis for love. The unlikely couple marry and live a simple life, overcoming obstacles and growing together. Performed in Spanish and English.
