On Monday, April 14th, the cast of the production “21” was invited by the organization Voces: The Latino Heritage Network of The New York Times to present a scene from the play and join Repertorio’s Resident Director José Zayas and the 2012 MetLife ‘Nuestras Voces’ winner Marco Antonio Rodríguez for an insightful panel discussion for the publication’s employees. In a beautiful setting perched above midtown Manhattan in the iconic New York Times Building, the employees of the distinguished newspaper – always a friend to Repertorio throughout the decades – sat down and discussed the current state of Latino theater in New York City with moderator Pedro Rafael Rosado.
An amazing opportunity to perform for one of the world’s largest publications, the team shared the history of the theater, the current changing and fluid state of the latino theater scene, how the MetLife ‘Nuestras Voces’ National Playwriting Competition ensures art for future generations of writers, and Repertorio’s upcoming premiere of Barceló con hielo.
