Out Of The Box Theatrics to Present RED EYES Staged Reading in December


Out of the Box Theatrics and Jennifer Campos Productions will present a staged reading of RED EYES by Michael León on Monday, December 12, available for in person or livestream viewing.

For Carlos, sexual desires come with terrifying results -- the visions of a haunting Red-Eyed figure. After a surprising blowout at the grocery store prompts his fiance to put their wedding on hold, Carlos unwillingly seeks help for his volatile outburst. As he takes a journey backward, Carlos unlocks repressed memories of toxic masculinity, childhood trauma, and insurmountable grief.

Directed by Jorge Donoso, RED EYES stars Reynaldo Piniella (Trouble in Mind on Broadway), Zuleyma Guevara (La Ruta with Working Theatre, Quail with Clubbed Thumb), Camila Pérez Santiago (Carla's Quince), Nate Betancourt (Drunk Shakespeare, Randy's Dandy Coaster Castle), David Anzuelo (Intimacy, Halfway Bitches...) and Maribel Martinez (Shakespeare in the Park's Julius Caesar). RED EYES will be presented Monday, December 12 at 7:15pm at Theatre 71 (152 West 71st Street New York, NY 10023). Tickets are $12.50 for in person seating or $15 for live-streaming access at
