“Nana Lupita”

Talkin' Broadway | Richard Green

KDHX | Tina Farmer

“Carmen Garcia is sweet and sassy as Nana Lupita and Isabel Garcia is spot on as American teen Vanessa, guardedly revealing her insecurity and desires to her much loved grandmother. The connection between the two feels deep and genuine.”

Ladue News | Mark Bretz

“Carmen Garcia radiates warmth and wisdom as Nana Lupita, who reveals to her aspiring boxer granddaughter her own youthful determination.”
