    This group of veteran actors will be performing improvised scenes based off their own real-life stories where their Latinx identities were challenged to the point they have to ask “Am I Latin Enough”? They’ll be exploring family relationships, work situations, language barriers, and much more in a comedic light while showing why they DO belong to the Latinx diaspora.
    Featuring:
    Frankie Benavides
    Ramon Charriez
    Steve Sanabria
    Ignacio Valdez
    Nelson Velazquez
    Future guests will be announced.

    A Midsummer Night’s Dream portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Theseus, (the Duke of Athens) and Hippolyta, (the former queen of the Amazons). The story follows the evening adventure of four young Athenian lovers, a group of six mechanics/amateur actors preparing a play for the royal wedding, and a kingdom of fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shakespeare’s most popular works for the stage, filled with love, laughter, and magic.
