"Parts Unknown in Houston? “Unknown” to whom exactly? Because we’ve certainly always known we were here."
"This is the pressure put on immigrant communities as they try to build a home here. The framing for our existence becomes: What does the country get out of it? Out of you?"

Be adventurous, try new things, and immerse yourself in another culture! But only if it costs less than $10 a plate.

If you're going to use the holiday to attempt to engage with Latino consumers, be sure to do so with authenticity and historical integrity (at the very least).

Each year, in the heart of springtime comes one of the most widely recognized celebrations in the U.S. – Cinco de Mayo. Some believe that the day commemorates Mexico’s Independence Day but in fact, Mexico celebrates its independence on September 16. What Cinco de Mayo actually commemorates is the da...

HELP SAVE A PLAY!!: I've been provided with a play to direct for Renegade New Original Works. The problem is casting. The writer calls for a hispanic cast and this is a community that seems to be missing from our local stages. It's not the first time I've seen this issue and would like to see more of our community coming forward and participating in theatre. If we can't find a cast, we can't do the show. Here is a list of cast members that I need, with the details. Please let me know ASAP if you are available for one of the roles by sending me a FB message: TITLE: FERNANDO Synopsis: What begins as a night in court becomes an adventure in passion, family, folklore, mysticism and baseball. CAST: Dermot: male 20-30 very white Translator: male OR female 30 or older, latino/latina Roberto: male 20 to 30 latino - part is cast Merida: female 20 to 30 latina Papi: male 40 or older Latino Stage reader: anybody Dates: Aug 10 9:00 p.m. & Aug 12 7:00 p.m Rehearsals: July 29 @ 2:00 p.m. & Aug 6 @ 3:00 p.m. Seriously folks, if we can't cast this show soon, it won't be able to be presented at the New Works festival. So if you have the time, please let me know so that it won't have to be cut. We'll have one REALLY disappointed author in Seattle!! Let's get festive and DO THIS!! Please let me know ASAP!! Help save a play!!
