BWW Review: CONFESIONES at Teatro Tercera Llamda BWW Review: CONFESIONES at Teatro Tercera Llamda
by Keith Waits on June 19, 2017 in Louisville

In most of her work, Josefina Lopez explores the hearts and minds of Hispanic women with vivid and bracing language that feels authentic; an honesty filtered through poetry.
