Spain Culture New York - Consulate General of Spain Presents 39 DEFAULTS at Casa Mezcal, Now thru 12/2
39 Defaults, a play by Mar Gomez Glez, returns to Casa Mezcal, 86 Orchard Street, NYC, from today, November 11-December 2, 2012 after a successful run during the Teatro Stage Fest. All performances are at 7pm and run Sundays, November 11, 18, 25 and Tuesdays, November 13, 20, 27 and December 2. Tickets are $15 ($12 Students) and are available online HERE.
39 Defaults is directed by Julian Mesri and features Pep Munoz and Kelly McGrath. The play shows this interaction in real time. It takes place in an authentic living room and in this intimate setting; there will be no border between the piece and the audience, who participate in the performance as the invited "voyeurs" of the evening.
