A Perfect LatinoLA Play: $20 Special!


"Mysterious, magical, funny, tragic ... insightful. Shocking! It took a few minutes for me to get up from my seat at last night's performance of "Lydia", a play written by Octavio Solis and directed by Juliette Carillo at the Music Center's Mark Taper Forum. The incredibly descriptive language, realistic sets and honest acting by a fine ensemble of Latino talent was awe-inspiring.

But the story, or should I say, stories that were interwoven in the two acts were familiar and exotic at the same time. Though it's set in El Paso in the 1970s -- a city I've only come to know the past couple years -- "Lydia" is, in the words of Jesus Reyes, whose interview with the playwrite and director is published here, a perfect LatinoLA play.

I couldn't agree more."

The Center Theatre Group is offering LatinoLA readers $20 tickets to "Lydia". Click http://www.centertheatregroup.org/land/lydia-LATINOLA-20.htm here for more info. I encourage you to experience this breath-taking theatrical presentation. It would be a pecado if you missed it.

PS: I'm recycling because it's Earth Day.
