Shakespeare en el Verano : Romeo and JulietRhode Island Latino Arts (RILA), announces the second year of its program Shakespeare en el Verano (Shakespeare in the Summer). This year’s production premieres a new bilingual English-Spanish adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet . Adapted by Brown/Trinity Rep MFA student Marcel Mascaro and co-directed by Mascaro and Trinity Rep’s associate artistic director Tyler Dobrowsky , the production will tour throughout Providence from July 7-July 31, 2017. All performances are free, open to the public and appropriate for all ages.
"I'm thrilled to build on the tremendous success of last summer and bring back our Shakespeare en el Verano program. I'm also incredibly grateful we once again get to partner with Rhode Island Latino Arts and their wonderful executive director, Marta Martinez,” said co-director Tyler Dobrowsky. “Great art belongs to everyone—by removing the barriers of cost, location and language, we will bring this free, mobile and bilingual production of Shakespeare's classic Romeo and Juliet to the vibrant community of Providence and Rhode Island. I can't wait to get started."
“In looking at the future of bilingual theater in Rhode Island, Rhode Island Latino Arts and Trinity Rep have been having in-depth conversations about the cultural implications of our partnership,” said Rhode Island Latino Arts executive director Marta V. Martínez. “Together, we are not just offering another play by Shakespeare, but we’re making local theater in general more accessible to the largest and fastest-growing population in the state. The decision by Trinity Rep to join RILA and begin to offer plays in a bilingual format is a major commitment on the part of the theater to be more inclusive of a whole culture.”
