"El-Gringuito" is a One Man Show written and performed by Éric-Dominique Pérez, it's about a redhead Latino, who explores the ups and downs of finding acceptance in a Latin-community where "you don't look like anyone around you." It's a poignant and hilarious account of growing up looking different while trying to belong within his people. This show will be presented in English, French and Spanish.
The show runs from April 26th, 2012-April 29, 2012.

A concert of songs written by Latin-American women, featuring compositions by María Grever, Consuelo Velázquez, Sylvia Rexach, Violeta Parra, Chabuca Granda and many others.
On Saturday, March 31 at 8 pm and Sunday, April 1 at 3 pm, Teatro LATEA presents a special concert “Canciones de Mujer”, featuring the songs of Latin American women composers, as conceived, directed and accompanied by noted Uruguayan-born pianist and conductor Pablo Zinger, and sung by vocalists Brenda Feliciano (Puerto Rico), Gizelxanath (México), Leonardo Granados (Venezuela) and Virginia Herrera-Crilly (México).
While Latin American women were kept out of the ranks of classical music composition – with a few notable exceptions, such as Teresa Carreño – they took a very prominent role in popular song, and in some cases, such as María Grever, they competed head to head with their male counterpart.
Such well know songs as “Bésame mucho”, “Gracias a la vida”, “Júrame”, and “Fina estampa” were written by women (who often wrote both music and lyrics).
Hear these songs – and many more – at Teatro LATEA on March 31 and April 1. For reservations, call (212) 529-1948. Admission: $ 20, students and seniors $ 15. Teatro LATEA is situated in the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural & Educational Center, 107 Suffolk Street, New York, accesible with the F, J, M, and Z subways.
CANCIONES DE MUJER
Un concierto de canciones escritas por mujeres de América Latina, incluyendo composiciones de María Grever, Consuelo Velázquez, Sylvia Rexach, Violeta Parra, Chabuca Granda y muchas otras.
El sábado 31 de marzo a las 8 de la noche y domingo 1 de abril a las 3 de la tarde, Teatro LATEA presenta un concierto especial, “Canciones de Mujer”, dedicado a las canciones de compositoras latinoamericanas, concebido, dirigido y acompañado por el conocido pianista y director uruguayo Pablo Zinger, con los vocalistas Brenda Feliciano (Puerto Rico) Gizelxanath (México), Leonardo Granados (Venezuela) y Virginia Herrera-Crilly (México).
Mientras las mujeres latinoamericanas fueron mantenidas al margen de la composición de música clásica – con pocas y notables excepciones, como Teresa Carreño – sí tuvieron un papel sumamente prominente en la canción popular, y en algunos casos, tales como el de María Grever, compitieron exitosamente con sus colegas hombres.
Canciones como “Bésame mucho”, “Gracias a la vida”, “Júrame” y “Fina estampa” fueron escritas por mujeres (que frecuentemente escribían música y letra).
Oiga esas canciones – y muchas otras, en el Teatro LATEA el 31 de marzo y 1 de abril. Para reservar entradas, llamar al (212) 529-1948. Precios: $ 20 entrada general, estudiantes y retirados $ 15. El Teatro LATEA está situado en el Centro Cultural y Educacional Clemente Soto Vélez , 107 Suffolk Street, New York, accesible con los subways F, J, M, y Z.
