BWW Review: A DOLL'S HOUSE PART 2 at Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati
by Abby Rowold - Mar 9, 2019

Hnath systematically sets out to prove that humans are selfish as each character tries to manipulate the others with long speeches. A meek and wounded Torvald (no match for the fiery and powerful feminist), risks everything to give Nora what she wants (only after being pushed to the brink), and it's too little too late.

BWW Interview: Vanessa Garcia And Victoria Collado of AMPARO
by Cristina Pla-Guzman - Mar 25, 2019

Approximately 330 miles…That's how far Havana, Cuba is from Miami, Florida. Within that space lies a distance of less than an hour. However, to some people it might as well be a lifetime away. I remember all my childhood being told about what Cuba used to be by my grandparents. As a third generation Cuban American living in Miami, Florida, as soon as we start to crawl, you are hearing about the good ole days before Fidel Castro stole Cuba from the people - people who still long for home. So I was thrilled to research into AMPARO. This one of a kind immersive theater experience is based on the compelling, true story of an immigrant family's triumph through exile. From present-day Miami to 1957-Cuba, where you will follow cast members through the Cuban Revolution, bearing witness to the story of the Arechabala family--founders of THE REAL HAVANA CLUB rum.
