May 25, 2014
It's shipped, it's off, it's out of our immediate hands. That's right, Vecinos, the Reyes play that received a B. Iden Payne nomination for Best New Play in 2008 is almost available for everyone to enjoy year-round.
In Vecinos, Don Roberto is a feisty 58-year-old widower and colorful barrio icon that spends his days watching TV and threatening to scare off young graffiti taggers, but his routine changes with the arrival of a new resident across the hall. When 58-year-old Dona Maria catches his eye, the two quickly become more than just vecinos (neighbors). Can it be love senior citizen style? You can bet the sparks will fly, especially when their children find out that there is romance in the air. This heartwarming and romantic bilingual comedy begs the question, is it ever too late to fall in love?
