“In Spanish with live English dubbing”

Press Reviews

WASHINGTON POST   "Teatro de la Luna's Hot Hot Hot Nights"
BOB ANTHONY   "Teatro de la Luna starts off with a big bang"

Uniting people from Spain to México, and from there all Hispanic people - without forgetting our Caribbean colleagues - until we arrive in Argentina. Uniting talents through award-winning Hispanic productions. Uniting the need to share this work with others. Now, especially, we walk together towards "Theater for the People".

Spain (Madrid)

by Marta Górriz

directed by Christian Atanasiu

February 2004,  Friday 27 (8PM), Saturday 28 (3PM y 8PM)

“In Spanish with live English dubbing”

…to laugh profoundly…

America has signified adventure, immensity, richness, the uncle ‘over there’, film stars, technology … America is “in”, “with it”, “wow” and “cool”. America is IT.

Light Satire (Ages: 16 & up)


The Polish

Spain (Barcelona)

 

by Pere Calders & Slawomir Mrozek

directed by J. F. Tarrasón

February 2004,  Friday 13 (8PM), Saturday 14 (3PM y 8PM)

“In Spanish with live English dubbing”

…to fall down laughing…

Who says Theater of the Absurb isn’t logical? Especially as it flies us through stories we are told are for children yet, as adults, we still don’t understand.

Comedy of the Absurd (Ages: All ages)


La Trova Yucateca

México

Café Concert

The Yucatan Troubadours

Carlos & Emiliano

February 2004,  Thursday 5  (7PM)

…to dream…

Carlos and Emiliano are much more than voices and guitars. They are the feeling, the wistful, romantic expression of the entire Yucatan. For lovers of love …

Café-Concert/Cabaret (Ages: All ages)

Teatro Nacional de Costa Rica

directed by Mariano González

February 2004,  Friday 20 (8PM), Saturday 21 (3PM y 8PM)

March 2004,  Friday 12 (8PM), Saturday 13 (3PM y 8PM))

“In Spanish with live English dubbing”

…to laugh and contemplate…

"Tres Noches Tropicales," written and directed by Puerto Rican dramatist (and honorary festival president) Myrna Casas, offers a slice out of the lives of Raquelita, a well-baubled Cuban housewife; Yaya, a trashy "masseuse"; and Gloria, a hopelessly drunk tarot-card reader.

Satiric Comedy (Ages: 16 & up)

Teatro de la Luna's Hot Hot Hot Nights

WASHINGTON POST, Saturday, February 14, 2004; Page C01
Last weekend at Arlington's Gunston Arts Center, performer Angela Meyer sang a few songs, told a few stories, and generally worked the room like a seasoned Vegas lounge act.
