Photo Flash: Inside Opening Night Of BASIC GLITCH Off-Broadway

Stephanie Salazar-Amaro's latest play BASIC GLITCH opened Off-Broadway at the Lion Theatre in the famed Theatre Row complex on 42nd Street in Manhattan. An official selection of the Broadway Bound Theatre Festival, the show celebrated 3 performances last week, with an encore performance upcoming on August 21st.

Under the direction of BBTF veteran director Ashley Kristeen Vega, the show stars Cassi Torres as Ramona, Laura Kay as Magda, Patricia Perales as Tía Leanore, and Thomas Valdez as Lino.

Typically, customer service centers are wellsprings of disappointment and manipulation for customers wanting to return a damaged item. There are hoops and hurdles and other ridiculous obstacles placed between the customer and any sense of satisfaction. In BASIC GLITCH, Ramona (Torres) seeks customer service assistance from Magda (Kay) and her unpaid intern Lino (Valdez) in resolving an issue of vital importance: a defunct reproductive system. Ramona runs into her beloved - and recently deceased - Tia Leanore (Perales) along the way to fixing what was supposed to be a common glitch in her system.

Tickets to the final encore performance are available now: www.broadwayboundfestival.com/book-online
