Tazza Kitchen was perfect. Happy hour prices, additional 10% discount to play attendees and good Italian couldn't ask for more on a reasonably priced food and libations.

It's an hour and a half without a break. Hit the restroom before you go in.

*_By María Beatriz Vergara

Troupe: Zero No Zero Teatro_

Two well-conceived characters – both physically and spiritually – create this portrait of “a class of old women” who practice a way of being and a way of life … From what they say and what they keep to themselves, we become avid confidants of their thoughts and naughtiness.

U.S.:* La Madre (The Mother)

*_By Sara Jeffrey

__Troupe: Teatro Doble

_ In a game of truth and lies, can a transvestite acknowledge his son in public? With delirious, breakneck humor, memories are relived so he can be his best possible person this night … perhaps his last.

_ Nov. 5 at 7:00pm

*U.S.: Usted Puede Ser Un Asesino

*ARGENTINA: Mujeres de 60 (Women of 60)

*_By Hilda Levy

__Troupe: Compañía Liliana Pécora

*PUERTO RICO: Una taza de té para una mujer casada (A Cup of Tea for a Married Lady)

*_By Eugenio Hernández

Troupe: Producciones Raúl Méndez_

The actress sings, laughs and cries, leading the audience to explore its feelings, all the while exposing women as men’s objects of desire. Taught to be submissive; and neglected and mistreated by inequality and machismo, even where they least expect it.

_U.S. premiere. Suitable for ages 15 and up.


Nov. 22-23, 8:00pm / Nov. 24 at 3:00pm

*_By Omar Varela

Troupe: Compañía Nidia Telles

_The phenomenon of people who want to go away, blindly hoping that somewhere else, come what may, they will find a better destination, always seeking “the country of wonders.” A look at ourselves with a humor that weaves itself throughout the work.

_Area premiere. Suitable for ages 13 and up.

*U.S.A.: Yo la llamo Rusita Rojas (I Call Her Rusita Rojas)

*_By Cristina Ferrari
