The sixth annual TeatroStageFest is underway on Manhattan's Lower East Side, allowing audiences to see theatrical productions by Latino New Yorkers and performances from Latin America.
The play "39 Defaults" by Spanish playwright Mar Gomez Glez, which highlights the Latino international festival, is the true story of a Spanish political activist on the run from the law who gets invited to stay at an American woman's New York apartment.
"It really creates a unique opportunity, I feel for an audience to experience a different kind of just experience, a different kind of way of seeing theater," said director Julian Mesri.
"We founded TeatroStageFest to give voice to the diverse and rich Latino community of New York," said Susana Tubert, the festival's executive director.
NY1 is a sponsor of the festival. For more information, visit teatrostagefest.org.
