THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: JORGE HUERTA ON LATINO THEATER FROM ACTOS TO PLAYS, RUBEN GUEVARA’S RUBEN AND THE JETS, SAL BALDENEGRO ON REPUBLICAN HYPOCRISY.
This week we visit with Dr. Jorge Huerta, the leading authority on Latino theater in America. His two books on Latino theater have defined Latino theater in America. Here he reviews the long journey of Latino theater form the one-act “actos” pioneered by playwright Luis Valdez to contemporary Latino playwrights. Check out Jorge’s fascinating interview.
Also this week, Rubén Funkahuatl Guevara, singer, musician, writer and producer recalls how a chance meeting with Frank Zappa led to the creation of his band Ruben And the Jets, a band that went on to produce two albums and tour the United States.
Sal Baldenegro returns with his Political Salsa y Mas blog. This week Sal calls out the hypocrisy of the Republicans in Congress who acquiesce to Donald Trump’s racism, lies and bullying. Sal believes that changing this must begin with Republicans themselves.
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
