My mentor, teacher, father figure, director, collaborator, and very very good friend, Teo Castellanos brings his one-man show “NE 2nd Ave.” to Miami once again for its 10th anniversary.
Written and performed by Teo Castellanos and directed by Michael Garces, this evening-length one-man play is a compilation of some characters that make Miami their home. A jitney becomes a metaphor for a journey that takes the audience through the bumpy streets of this city. The work conveys, with poignancy and humor, the profoundly rich and textured mix of Miami, in which distinct Cuban, Haitian, Jamaican, Puerto Rican, Jewish, Gay/Lesbian and African American influences emerge yet, interestingly enough, often in ways that reveal evidence of, often denied, cross-pollination. NE 2nd Avenue brings voice to Miami’s marginalized urban populations, exploring underlying issues of racism and social injustice, acknowledging the differences among us and ultimately discovering the common threads that bind us together.
January 19-21 at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts
