The Servant of Two Masters

By Carlo Goldoni

There is a free pre-show lecture prior to each performance; 7:15PM for evening performances and 1:15PM for the Sunday matinee.

USA and Puerto Rico Flags

By Carmen Rivera
Directed by Maria-Tania Becerra

La Gringa is about a young woman's search for identity. María Elena Garcia goes to visit her family in Puerto Rico during the Christmas holidays with plans to connect with her homeland. She is considered a Puerto Rican when in the United States and an American when in Puerto Rico, leaving her to feel she is nobody everywhere.
