INTAR & Consulate General of Spain to Launch New Venture ORO A LA CARTA


INTAR has announced a new collaboration with the Consulate General of Spain in New York to present the productions of new translations and adaptations of all eight Entremeses (one act short plays) by the Spanish poet/playwright/novelist Miguel de Cervantes.

The first two short plays will premiere this summer: "La Elecciónde losAlcaldes de Daganzo"/"Electing The Judges of Daganzo" (translated by José Antonio Melián and Walter Krochmal) and "El Retablo de lasMaravillas"/"The Magical Puppet Show" (translated by Mariana Carreño-King).

Performances will be June 23rd through 28th (all at 8pm), directed by Rebecca Martínez. The cast includes Gilbert Cruz, Valeria Avina, Jacqueline Guillen, Benjamin Manno, Gabe Morales, Martina Portratz, Ashley Marie Ortiz, Robby Ramos, Analisa Velez and Hara Zi. Many cast members are part of UNIT 52, INTAR's Emerging Artists company.

Six more Entremeses will be produced over the next two seasons, adapted, directed and featuring other INTAR artists and members of UNIT 52.

"The goal of the project is to expose the theatrical work of Cervantes to the diverse New York audience, with the hope that these new texts and productions serve as a catalyst for other theatre groups - professional, semi-professional and academic - to bring the Spanish Golden Age dramatic literature to a wider American audience," said Mr. Moreno.

INTAR, one of the United States' longest running Latino theatres producing in English, works to:§

- Nurture the professional development of Latino theater artists;

- Produce bold, innovative, artistically significant plays that reflect diverse perspectives;

- Make accessible the diversity inherent in America's cultural heritage through an integrated program of workshops, productions of works-in-progress, and mainstage productions. INTAR brings to the public vital and energetic voices of emerging and accomplished Latino theater professionals, giving expression to the diversity and depth of today's Latino-American community.

Performances will Thursday June 23rd through Tuesday June 28th, evenings at 8 PM. Performances will take place at INTAR's theater space (500 West 52nd Street, at Tenth Avenue, on the 4th Floor).
