2017 has officially kicked-off and we are looking forward to the many projects this years brings for us!
Here’s what’s in store this new year:
First up is a new production just in time to honor the Dominican Republic and its strides for freedom!
IN THE NAME OF SALOMÉ
Written by: Marco Antonio Rodríguez | Directed by: José Zayas
A new play based on Julia Álvarez’s epic fictional novel of real-life iconic poet Salomé Ureña de Henríquez. Born in the 1850’s, in a time of intense political and emotional repression and turmoil, Salomé’s fervent patriotic poems turned her into a national icon. “In the Name of Salomé” is equally the story of Salomé’s daughter, Camila, who grows up in exile, in the shadow of her mother’s legend.
