“Tell Hector I Miss Him” Finds the Beauty in the Cracks of Life

The island of Puerto Rico. The island of enchantment. The Commonwealth of the United States of America that is a jump away from Florida. An island stuck in many ways between old traditions and necessary progress. An island fighting hard to keep an identity while the “benefactors” try to give it another. The island I come from and have seen […]

“Jack of Hearts, Master of None” is Another Impressive Production from Mind The Art Entertainment

It’s been almost two years since I was first introduced to Mind The Art Entertainment and the work of Christian De Gré with “Beware The Chupacabra!” at the Fringe Festival in 2015. I remember that show, because it was over two hours with no intermission and it didn’t matter. I was entertained, not impressed, but had a lot of fun. […]

Puppets and Wit Drive the Drama in “Made in China”

In a bleak world, where things do not seem to make sense, we are constantly looking for logic or reason that will explain the things that we cannot comprehend. This search always puts us on a journey in which we have to delve into an abyss of despair to come out enlightened, and somehow put the dots together of something […]

“Alligator” is a Tale of Two Plays; One Has Bite

Life is not pretty. It usually isn’t. We go through it romanticizing moments to create beautiful narratives that makes memories that have the glamour they lacked when they happened. This practice is even extended to how we remember places and write them in history. This way we end up with a life sometimes more worth living than if we decide […]

“Old Times” Haunts Us with the Past

The ghosts of our past are ones we have to learn to live with. They exist around us, stick to us, drain our spirit if we let them. In “Old Times” by Harold Pinter, the ghosts of the past are real and they invade the present life of a couple that has escaped the big city and its ghosts to […]

“No Man’s Land” is a Good Example of How Bold Theater Can Be

Let me begin to say this: art is not supposed to provide a safe space for anyone. Art is a reflection of society, theater its stage mirror. I say this not only because of recent events, but because it does fit with this review. You see, on Friday night an audience came to see a show billed as “No Man’s […]

Seductive and Dangerous: “Richard III” by The Bridge Group

“A horse, a horse, my Kingdom for a horse!” an actor utters in front of an audience. This is possibly the fifth time I’ve seen this line being said to an audience that I was part of. I’ve seen around that many iterations of the Duke of Gloucester’s rise into kinghood, catch him being both devilish in some and boorish […]
