MITAD Y MITAD Set for Teatro SEA, 4/9
After the great success received in theaters in Miami, the dark comedy "Mitad y Mitad" written by Jordi Gómez Sánchez and Pep Anton reaches the New York theater productions this season. Starring Gabriel Porras and Roberto Manrique, two charismatic and talented actors from telenovelas, and directed by Venezuelan Manuel Mendoza, "Mitad y Mitad" will be showcased at Teatro SEA starting April 9 and will serve as the launch of the campaign 's conquest, which will bring to the Big Apple plays such as Toc-Toc, Taxi, Confessions of the Penis and Vagina Monologues.
"With our campaign La Conquista, and this first production, we want to bring a fun and different theater proposal with well known and beloved Latin artists", says Manuel Mendoza. "We are proud of our success in Miami and also hope to conquer the Big Apple and join the group of talented Latinos who are already making quality creative works in the city", concluded Mendoza.
"Mitad y Mitad" tells the story of a mother who has been around too long, with a stroke, the flu and very little desire to die, a son close to 50 with a possessive wife who is half bald, a company that is sinking and his retirement moving farther away, another son reaching 40 who cares, bathes, combs her hair and almost kills her, a Jehovah's Witness who visits every Wednesday, many bills and little savings, a house to be sold... an endless night, full of unspeakable secrets that have just come to light and cause the crudest confessions.
This comedy will be presented for only two weeks at the Teatro SEA located at 107 Suffolk St, New York, NY 10002. We invite you to join the countless spectators who have laughed nonstop.
