Free Latino theater Monday at Goodman

Posted By on 08.08.08 at 07:30 PM

The Goodman Theatre's Latino Theatre Festival 08 continues next week with a free event: "From the Streets to the Stage," by Chicago's UrbanTheater Company. This Humboldt Park troupe has carved a niche for itself by producing seldom-seen works by Latinos, notably including Nuyorican poet-playwright Miguel Pinero (Short Eyes, The Sun Always Shines for the Cool). Selections from both those plays will be performed Mon 8/11, along with excerpts from Elizabeth Swados's musical "Runaways" and "The King of Cans" by Tato Laviera. The program, which also includes spoken-word performances by members of the youth-run Batey Urbano community center, begins at 7:30 PM in the Goodman lobby.

Here's a previous post with what's going on at the fest this weekend.
