GALA Hispanic Theatre has just announced its 40th season here in Washington, DC. Its full slate of bilingual productions for adults and children opens September 10th with Garcia Lorca’s classic play Yerba, in a new adaptation.
“It’s hard to believe that it has been forty years since we opened GALA in a small townhouse in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC, then the heart of the Latino community” says Hugo Medrano, GALA’s Founder and Artistic Director.. As we begin another decade of providing the breadth of the Latino performing arts to our community and the nation, our 40th Season turns a new lens on timeless tales by celebrated Latino writers and artists who have been part of GALA’s vibrant history– Federico García Lorca, Gabriel García Márquez, and Gustavo Ott. We also introduce a cutting edge Chicano writer, Octavio Solís, to DC audiences.” “Our journey,” added Medrano, “ is guided by extraordinary Latino directors, from the U.S. and abroad, who have been part of the GALA family over the years. Their artistry and our community will help point us to the next forty years.”
GALA Hispanic Theatre became the thirty third professional company to announce its full 2015-2016 season.
