SPECIAL DISCUSSION: The Poet & The Playwright
Portland Stage presents a special post-performance discussion following the November 13th 2pm Matinee: a conversation with historic inaugural poet Richard Blanco and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz. Both men share Cuban roots, immigrated to the U.S., and write about identity through the lens of the Cuban-American experience in a lyrical style. Blanco will share selections of his writing, and he and Cruz will discuss the similarities of their work and their experiences as writers.
Portland Stage creates powerful theater that resonates with our community. If you have questions about the subject or content of any of our plays, please contact the Box Office prior to purchasing tickets for a detailed synopsis.
