The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

Adapted & Directed by Marco Antonio Rodríguez

Oscar is a naive “nerd” from New Jersey who has finally left the grips of his imposing Dominican mother and is attending his first semester of college at Rutgers with his rebellious sister. He dreams of becoming the Dominican J.R.R. Tolkien and, most of all, finding love. But Oscar may never get what he wants. Blame the “fukú”—a curse that has haunted Oscar’s family for generations, following them on their epic journey from Santo Domingo to the USA.  The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao explores the endless human capacity to persevere—and risk it all—in the name of love.

Performed in Spanish with English supertitles.

We are excited to announce our 4 performances of THE TEMPEST, a theater piece directed by Luis Salgado. These performances are the result of creative collaboration between professional and aspiring artists from Latin America, the Caribbean, and New York City.

This riveting and multilingual production crowns this year’s joint run of the Beyond Workshop Series and Raúl Juliá Training Unit with a 21st Century Latinx take on Shakespeare. The Bard of Avon’s heightened language meets the rich sonority and rhythms of Latinx cultures, and artists get to bring their full selves to bear on the story’s comedy, drama, betrayal, and magic!

Mario Golden

"Semillas" is a novel in which varied themes are tackled, such as Gabriel's broken dreams, the dark entrails of power and torture, the struggle for homosexual liberation and his love affair with the trade union left, the naivety of love and of human relations, the sorority of feminist women or not with gays; nonetheless it focuses the gaze of the gay world through the eyes of Gabriel; a young man dissatisfied with how he lives his sexuality, how the gay world offers him to live it, in front of which he rebels and questions the desire, love, relationships, but also the sociopolitical context in which he lives.

How well do we know ourselves? How well do we know our family members? Why sometimes, we don’t get along with a family member or a neighbor? Dr. King once said, “People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they have not communicated with each other.”

“T.R.U.T.H.” is a gut-wrenching social drama that depicts two different moments in our society where innocent lives take unexpected turns. There are men behind bars trying to make sense of the reasons that landed them there, or a teenager transgender girl in desperate pursuit of acceptance at home and in society. This piece seeks to ignite a conversation with a different perspective on topics afflicting our society today and at the same time to bring awareness to the reasons why America is the number one country in the world with the biggest population of incarcerated men of color. Why it is so hard to accept a family member who does not fit the model society has already established for us? Many may think they have the answer to everything until they see this play.
