When a corrupt state narco and a scar-faced drug dealer decide to take over a Mexican fishing village, young Nayeli and two friends take inspiration from the movie, The Magnificent Seven. They trek to America to find seven Mexican men to help reclaim their village. Karen Zacharias based her play on Luis Alberto Urrea's novel, and is much thinner by contrast. To make the play move, she cut out the backdrop, and the play does move, though at times fitfully. Into the Beautiful North is part of the "rolling premiere" network. It opens in several theaters around the U.S. at the same time. I doubt the others could give it as energized and honest a staging as director Sam Woodhouse and his fine ensemble cast and crew have done. Worth a try.
