A timely story about compromising moral values for the sake of getting rich quick. A Cuban man keeps his promise to bring a friend’s son to the United States. After the young immigrant gets a real taste of hard labor, he decides to accept a job offer as a director of a medical clinic conscious of the job’s dubious nature. He begins to enjoy the benefits of quick earned cash, but his world is turned upside down when he is arrested by the FBI accusing him of Medicaid fraud. After being released on probation, he realizes that he must make a difficult decision, whether to stay in the country and face prosecution or return to his former life in Cuba. Generational, political, and moral differences collide in this modern day drama written and directed by Yoshvani Medina. 
Winning Play of the 2010 Nuestras Voces National Latino Plays Initiative.

Black Milk > Absolute Russian Rawness > Julio 19 - Agosto 4 > East 13th Street Theater > BLACK.


“When you get back to your capital, you can tell them how people live in Russia, ’cause they don’t have the faintest idea.” -- Black Milk
In Black Milk, Lyovchik and Poppet, a small-time crook and his heavily pregnant, chain-smoking, lollipop-sucking wife, descend on a post-Communist wasteland, swindling villagers out of their savings. The young couple sit stranded in a remote train station and as the night persists, the strange, cruel, and whimsical world of their homeland teaches them a lesson.

Shakespeare In the Park 2012 > June to August > 8 PM > FREE > Delacorte Theater in Central Park > SHAKESPEARE.


>> Into The Woods > July 23 - August 25

EVITA > Open Ended > Teatro Marquis > EVITA.


El musical de TIM RICE y ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER, ganador de un premio Tony, vuelve a Broadway con la actuación de RICKY MARTIN (Les Misérables), ganador de un premio Grammy®, y ELENA ROGER (Piaf), ganadora de un premio Olivier, quien será la primera actriz argentina en protagonizar el rol de Evita en Broadway, y replica su representación extraordinaria que deslumbró la audiencia y la critica londinense en el West End. También con la participación de MICHAEL CERVERIS (Sweeney Todd), ganador de un premio Tony.
Eva Perón utilizó su inteligencia y carisma para ascender rápidamente desde un tugurio de Argentina hasta la residencia presidencial como Primera Dama. Adorada por su pueblo como la abanderada de los humildes, se convirtió en una de las mujeres más poderosas del mundo, mientras que su codicia, descomunal ambición y frágil salud la convirtieron en la más trágica. EVITA cuenta la apasionada e inolvidable historia verídica de Eva, y nos deleita con algunas de las canciones más hermosas del teatro, como "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" y "High Flying, Adored."

Leap of Faith > Con Raúl Esparza > Open Ended > Teatro St. James > LEAP.


Four-time Tony Award® nominee Raúl Esparza (Cabaret, Company) stars as Jonas Nightingale, an electrifying performer and rabble rouser who's planning to take the whole town for a ride. But when a small-town girl stops him in his tracks, this hustler may just discover something to believe in. 
LEAP OF FAITH features a roof-raising new score by eight-time Oscar®-winning composer Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors).The creative team also includes bookwriters Janus Cercone and Tony®-winner Warren Leight (Side Man); Grammy®-winning lyricist Glenn Slater (Tangled); choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys); and Christopher Ashley, director of the Tony®-winning Best Musical Memphis.

La vida en Los Esclavos Unidos > Julio 14, 15 / Agosto 4, 5, 25 >  En Repertorio Español. 


Saulo García, author and performer, stated that “this show shares the stories of immigrants that finally understood that it is better to be “scraping by” in the United States than “scraping by” elsewhere; of those that already had their first foreclosure and learned to do those things that were inimaginable in their countries such as: paint the house, clean the roof with a water pressure machine or install a toilet in the bathroom.” 
With outstanding humor, “La vida en los Esclavos Unidos” (Life in the United Slaves’) touches on themes such as the financial crisis, healthcare in the U.S.A., immigrants’ jobs and the lifelong trauma left after the interview for a visa at the U.S. Embassy. The production uses modern video projections to bridge the different episodes and themes. 

En El Tiempo De Las Mariposas > Julio 8, 28 / Agosto 18  >>  En Repertorio Español.

“In The Time of the Butterflies” is the story of the courageous Mirabal sisters (Patria, Minerva and María Teresa) from the Dominican Republic. The sisters inspired resistance cells throughout the country against the dictatorial regime of Gen. Rafael Leónidas Trujillo. The ‘butterflies’, their secret code name, were brutally murdered by the regime in 1960.
Based on Julia Álvarez’s popular novel, the martyred butterflies come to vibrant life in a warm, brilliant, and dramatic production by the talented duo – playwright Caridad Svich and director José Zayas– that brought us the critically acclaimed production of Isabel Allende’s “The House of the Spirits” in 2009.
