In Love in the Time of Piñatas, writer, comedian, and solo performer Baruch Porras Hernandez breaks open his life and lets all the candy fall out. Get ready to party with horny Piñatas, hear stories about sex clubs, and hang out with the ghost of Frida Kahlo in a show that pushes past the stereotypes to bring you a unique story of a Queer Latino immigrant and his family struggling to thrive in America.
