This heartwarming and eye-opening story about a young Mexican-American girl, Esperanza, paints a vivid picture about growing up in “el Barrio.” This play, based on the critically acclaimed novel of the same name by Sandra Cisneros, marks the third collaborative production between Teatro del Pueblo and Pangea World Theater.
New milestones achieved during this production?
- The most well-attended collaborative production thus far – expanding our reach into the community
- Seven out of the eight actors were Latino – providing an opportunity to showcase, support and develop an underutilized fine arts resource
- The most well-attended school matinee performances and post-show discussions – reaching over 1200 students
We are honored and grateful to have received such a favorable review by Anna Hoeschen at tcdailyplanet. Please click on the link below for her remarks:
And finally, another first: one very special birthday girl was flown to the Twin Cities from Dallas, TX by her boyfriend to see this performance on opening weekend. The House on Mango Street was her favorite novel as a girl, and her boyfriend wanted her to experience the only theatrical production of The House on Mango Street in the nation. Happy Birthday! Thank you for celebrating with us.
