Colibri, directly across the street from the theater, is great for dinner before the show. Tasty tapas to share.

ACT's theater is grand but you would think they would up date the seat size and leg room. Buy standing tickets if your over six feet tall..

A very well-acted family drama with the plus of being a fairly accurate depiction of Puerto Rican culture of the time.

More Information


OBIE Award winner José Rivera (A.C.T.‘s Brainpeople, Marisol), the Academy Award–nominated screenwriter of The Motorcycle Diaries, returns to his native Puerto Rico to explore the ineffable dreams of lovers. In one of his most personal works, passion and humor collide in an exuberant village in 1953, where Flora’s search for true love follows an unexpected course. A bold, moving second act, set almost 40 years later in America, probes the darker mysteries of marriage.

This brilliant new work reverberates with the gorgeous sounds of Latin love songs, or boleros, written by master composer Fabian Obispo. Acclaimed actors Rachel Ticotin (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Total Recall, and Broadway’s Macbeth) and Robert Beltran (Star Trek: Voyager, Big Love) star alongside the fresh new talents of Drew Cortese, Lela Loren, Dion Mucciacito, and Michele Vazquez in their A.C.T. debut.
