BOHEMIAN LIGHTS is the journey of a blind poet, Max Estrella, on the last night of his life. In the streets of Madrid, the city is self-destructing, the country on the verge of revolution. It is a cold November, 1975. Through a groundbreaking integration of film with Live Theatre, BOHEMIAN LIGHTS unravels a dark, whirlwind satire of political Spain and her starving artists. This production represents the world premiere of a new adaptation of Ramón Valle-Inclán's masterwork Luces de Bohemia, the English-language U.S. premiere, and only the second ever production in any capacity.

BOHEMIAN LIGHTS will be performed at Pregones Theater, located at 575 Walton Avenue in the South Bronx, accessible via the 2/4/5 trains to 149th Street - Grand Concourse Station, just 25 minutes from midtown. Performance times are Saturday, January 11 at 8:00pm and Sunday, January 12 at 3:00pm.

The cast of BOHEMIAN LIGHTS includes Andrew Bridges, Kate DaRocha, Lori Felipe-Barkin, Jose Mercado, Kevin Michael Murphy and Dylan Wittrock.

BOHEMIAN LIGHTS has set design by Tyler Mercer with Alan Brincks, costume design by Michelle Persoff, lighting design by Joanna Emmott, sound design by Shawn Durbin, original music by Neil Quillen, video design by Mark Costello, and film cinematography by David Baloche with Quinlan Orear.
