R.EVOLUCIÓN LATINA is pleased to present TO BE OR NOT TO BE - A SHAKESPEAREAN EXPERIENCE devised under the direction of Luis Salgado in collaboration with The Public Theater's Ian Hersey and Siti Company's Leon Ingulsrud. The SHAKESPEAREAN EXPERIENCE will perform five performances only at the Harlem School for the Arts (645 St Nicholas Ave, New York, NY 10030). Performances begin Thursday, April 5 and continue through Saturday, April 7.

The SHAKESPEAREAN EXPERIENCE explores the experience of being an immigrant in the US, facing the challenge of the English language, finding place in society, and a sense of belonging.

The spirit of Raul Julia, one of the first latinos to thrive at classic Shakespearean work at The Public Theater in NYC, will guide the characters into the light and self-acceptance they need to open the doors of possibilities. Together they will break down the walls that hinder their potential in our society today.

R.Evolución Latina is thrilled to use the works of Shakespeare in a way that celebrates community as a whole. R.Evolución Latina partners with Pregones/PRTT Raul Julia Training unit, in furthering the legacy of Míriam Colón.

The production stars artists living in NYC from France, Puerto Rico and more: Adela Bolet, Adriana Coronado, Bruno Giraldi, Eduardo Uribe, Gilda Mercado, Gina Fernandez, Igor Correa, Ismael Castillo, Jacob Louchheim, Jesús Sepúlveda,Katherine Goldblum, Krystal Pou, Luis Herrera, Matthew Oster, Matthew Ting, Nedelka Sotelo, Phil Ordoñez, Samia Omari, Will Taitel; International students from Colombia, Argentina, Mexico, and Chile: Angie Catalina, Velasquez Ramirez, Camila Martinez, Clara Lanzani, Diego Andres Lopez Gonzalez, Josefina Lausirica, Juan Camilo Laverde, Julian Eduardo Pantoja Perea, Laura Andrea Mojica Garzon, Maria Carolina Orozco Gómez, Maria Jose Gutierrez Beron, Mariana Herrera, Marlene Cristina Gomez Rodriguez, Melissa Barajas Alzua, Nelsy Viviana Salazar, Sergio Pareto, Solana Del Carmen Gomez, Sonia Monroy Fernandez, Vanina Frezza.
