LA USURPADORA, THE MUSICAL
(Santiago Limón, USA/Mexico, 2023. In Spanish and English with English subtitles)
La Usurpadora, The Musical is a musical comedy set in Mexico and the United States told with hits from the Latin music of the nineties. The film stars Isabella Castillo, (El Señor de los Cielos, Malverde: El Santo Patrón) who plays Valeria and Victoria, twin sisters who couldn’t be more different, and Alan Estrada (¿Conoces a Tomás?, Día de Muertos), who plays the male lead and romantic interest, Carlos Daniel. It’s a tale of two identical twins separated at birth and unknown to each other, one poor, but truly decent, the other rich, conniving, and generally awful. A chance meeting brings them together in Las Vegas and soon their lives are hopelessly intertwined.
