Meet the Playwright and cast of Junot Díaz’s “La breve y maravillosa vida de Oscar Wao”, the protagonists of Repertorio’s first production of the 2019-2020 Season. The play follows the story of Oscar a naive “nerd” from New Jersey who has finally left the grips of his imposing Dominican mother and is attending his first semester of college at Rutgers with his rebellious sister. He dreams of becoming the Dominican J.R.R. Tolkien and, most of all, finding love. But Oscar may never get what he wants. Blame the “fukú”—a curse that has haunted Oscar’s family for generations, following them on their epic journey from Santo Domingo to the USA. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao explores the endless human capacity to persevere—and risk it all—in the name of love.

“The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao” will begin performances October 12 ahead of an October 15 opening. The show will be performed in Spanish with English supertitles.
