Dolores And North Of Providence

Wednesday, January 26, 2011 through Saturday, February 12, 2011

Two Searing Plays by Edward Allan Baker.

Length: 1 hr 40 mins


Teatro La Tea and Clout in the Mug Productions are proud to present Dolores and North of Providence, two searing one-act plays by Edward Allen Baker.

Dolores: What started out for Dolores as a frantic search for shelter ends as usual in her sister Sandra's
house, and becomes a reckoning with the mistakes they’ve made and the limits of acceptance. A harrowing portrait of the evolution of love, Dolores is the story of siblings and spouses, bruises and bullets, in which two sisters with two very different kinds of heartache must confront in their own way not only the shadows of memory but the anguish behind every routine that life imposes. It takes the
punishing love of family and one shocking act of violence to remind them that every kind of love has its own darkness and that every plea for mercy is likewise one for understanding.

"Floridita, My Love" & "Barceloneta de Noche"


 Barceloneta, de noche: A small house, in a small town, on the small island of Puerto Rico; an ancient Nazi on his deathbed, three young caretakers, a gardener, a German professor, and the ghost of Marlene Dietrich; a secret love, a fortune, a will, and a murder plot. An bizarre whodunnit in the traditions of Pedro Almodóvar, Eugene Ionesco, and Joe Orton, Barceloneta, de noche contains an endless stream of gleefully mischievous revelations interspersed with musical and choreographic interludes. The wind is blowing and the sun is setting – welcome to Barceloneta, at night.

FLORIDITA, my Love: After missing a train, a young immigrant waitress contemplates suicide on the subway platform at the 125th Street Station. What starts as an everyday indulgence, becomes a regression into her darkest fantasies, with elements of the detective story, melodrama and the absurd. FLORIDITA, my Love is a darkly comic nightmare about the invisible in America, set on the border crossings between the real and the imaginary, Harlem and Morningside Heights, Mexico and New York.

Lear is an aging King who wants to retire by abdicating to his three daughters. However, in an act of petty ego stroking, he asks them who among them loves him most. While two daughters eagerly toady to him, his one loving daughter, Cordelia, refuses play along with this foolish charade. In a rage, Lear exiles her along with his one loyal aide who dares to stick up for her. This foolish move works to Lear's sorrow as his two remaining daughters cruelly and gradually strip him of his status and possessions until he is rendered an insane hermit attended only by his fool. All the while, the illegitimate son of another lord is plotting his own ambitions while contributing to this tragic tale of ego and familial cruelty.

a reading

My Song the Way I Sing It


 In this play, My Song the Way I Sing It, I explore, girlhood, marriage, and the different ways feminism and society have affected the way we see the world and ourselves through 6 female archetypes . It was birthed from conversations with friends which then led to interviews with several women about their stories and how they view the world around them. The images that women are constantly bombarded with are that of the male perspective on who we are or should be. From our favorite televisions shows, to movies and music we are hard pressed to find a place that speaks to who we truly are and the obstacles we face. I want to not only give young women a voice but to give the community of  young girls a picture of themselves that was created by someone who had gone through what they are going through and made it out alive in opposition to what someone thinks they are going through.

"Multi-sensory experiences with the of aid puppets, masks and live Andean music..a rare and magical look into the Incan culture"

Length: 1 hr 45 mins 
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

Ollantay's story is one passed down by the Incas from generation to generation, making this a unique experience to see in the United States, and among the first recorded plays written in the Americas. The tale of Ollantay is that of a noble commoner who defies his community because of his love for the princess Cusi Coyllor, and thereby puts the empire into a state of rebellion. The play combines tragedy and comedy, and has a vivid cast of male and female characters. Similar to the many stories of the ancient Greeks, this one also utilizes a chorus - but contains a very unique point of view, one that is rarely seen. It is a love story, one of passions, pride, and ultimately forgiveness. Ollantay is an ensemble piece with the company of actors all playing multiple roles – all bilingual, and from many parts of Latin America. The play is presented as a multi-sensory experience told with the aid of puppets, masks and live Andean music. It's a rare and magical look into the Incan culture.

RASGOS GROUP THEATRE was founded in 1991 to touch audiences with the love of Latin American theatre. Rasgos Theatre members have performed on the Spanish and English stages throughout North and South America, offering audiences the works of those rarely seen and often overlooked. With their first production, The Cubs ("Los Cachorros"), RASGOS GROUP THEATRE firmly established itself as a pillar of Latin American theatre. Their ensemble portrayal of Mario Vargas Llosa's work depicting adolescence in Peru earned Manuel Arenas the Hispanic Critics' ACE award (Latin equivalent to Outer Critics' Circle Award) for Best Director, while Bill Blechingberg was nominated for Best Actor, and the production was nominated for Best Play. Other Rasgos works have included: The Night of the MurderersLa Noche De Los Asasinos, ACE Award, Best Director), Isabelle's Three Caravels and Sinverguenza (Isabela Tres Carabelas y un Sinverguenza), and Pancho Villa

La Luz De Un Cigarillo

by Marco Rodriguez



Synopsis:  Many believe the bulk of the Dominican American experience in New York City lies in Washington Heights, but in the unexpected corners of now gentrified upper mid-town are remnants of what once was: Luzecita Ortensia Cruz is one of only a handful of Dominica   immigrants that stubbornly remains in this neighborhood.

 A sudden death in the family forces her son, Julio Cesar, to return to the City after a five year self-imposed absence.  In the course of two nights they attempt to rekindle the love and appreciation for each other and their Dominican roots.  But hidden secrets are unexpectedly revealed and threaten to destroy an already thin bond.

A Retrospective from The InsideOut

(New York, NY) - Elizabeth “MACHA” Marrero is at once again with DAKA Bocona from the Boogie Down Bronx!   The big-mouthed, Bronx-born Boriqua invokes her many characters to bring a fresh observation to her childhood, her family and the her life influences growing up in the boogie down Bronx.  The show, written and performed by Ms. Marrero and directed by Virginia Cruz, will be presented, Friday and Saturday, August 28 & 29, 2009 at 8pm at La Tea Theater, 107 Suffolk Street in the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center (between Delancey and Rivington Streets) in Manhattan's Lower East Side.  Tickets cost $20 and can be purchased at the box office, by visiting www.smarttix.com or by calling 212-868-4444.

presentation of:

Wednesday, January 16, 2008 through Saturday, February 02, 2008

Come and experience "Closer" with the passion and emotion that only an "all-Latino" cast can evoke with their innate infusion of eroticism and sexual desire. It will illuminate the synergy between love and attraction, lust and trust.
Director and producer Veronica Caicedo have given Patrick Marbers acclaimed stage drama about the romantic interactions of four people. Dan (Ricardo Hinoa) is a writer in London who wants to finish a novel, but in the meantime supports himself by writing obituaries. One day he chances upon Alice (Carissa Jocett Toro), a beautiful young American expatriate, working as a stripper, when he sees her get hit by a car. Alice immediately falls for Dan, and gives him her love without reservation. Dan is initially enchanted with Alice, and returns her affection, but while she inspires him to write his novel (based on her life), her neediness begins to wear on him.
Anna (Sol Marina Crespo) is a photographer who is hired to take a portrait of Dan for the dust jacket of his book; Dan is attracted to her easy confidence, and while the two of them flirt, Anna soon (inadvertently through Dan's playful machinations) meets Larry (Antonio Aponte), a dermatologist, and marries him. Dan can't get Anna out of his mind even though she's married, and the two become lovers, but Dan is frustrated by the fact that Anna is reluctant to leave Larry for him.

Teatro LA TEA:
Wednesday - Saturdays: SEPTEMBER 5 - 29 @ 8 p.m.

New York, September 25, 2007  Mastering Sex & Tortillas, a very sexy and erotic comedy, tackles sexuality, race, gender and immigration through a queer Chicana lens.

Writer/performer Adelina Anthony solo show was a hit in its Los Angeles debut at The Theatre District last year. Now Mastering Sex & Tortillas comes to NY at Teatro LA TEA Lower East Side. Armed with a nomination for Best Solo Performance from the LA Weekly newest incarnation will run at 8 p.m. every Wednesday through Saturday night from
September 5 through September 29, 2007. 
Mastering Sex & Tortillas! has played to sold-out houses and standing ovations at BRAVA! (San Francisco), Cara Mia Theatre Company (Dallas), La  toured a national circuit of universities that included Princeton University, University of Texas at El Paso, Stanford University, UC Santa Cruz, DePauw University and Smith College, among many others. In it, Anthony plays La Profesora Mama Chocha, a high-femme and high-drama seminar instructor who more than educates her audience on Lesbianism 101 from a tortillera point of view. After the intermission, she returns as debonair FBI agent Papi Duro, who has plenty of work to do 

The Dallas Morning News said of Mastering Sex & Tortillas!, is not the PC, Birkenstocky, close-cropped lesbian culture some folks may expect. Ms. Anthony seems determined to shake up audiences of every stripe. But likely to leave them shaking with laughter.
