In conjunction with the upcoming premiere productions of José Rivera’s Another Word for Beauty and Roberto Bolaño’s 2666 (adapted for the stage by Robert Falls and Seth Bockley), Goodman Theatre presents an in-depth look at the remarkable range of contemporary Latina and Latino writers working in theater with A Celebration of Latina/o Artists.
