SAT, MAY 13 at 1:00PM
MCC Theater in collaboration with The Sol Project and INTAR Theatre invite you to a celebration on MAY 13 beginning at 1:00 PM until 6:00 PM. Celebrate the first time two Afro-Dominican playwrights, Guadalís Del Carmen (Bees & Honey) and Julissa Contreras (Vámonos), are produced off-Broadway in the same season – right across the street from each other – and experience the food, music, and shops representing the island of Quisqueya, led by local community organizations.
Special thanks to the NYC Mayor’s Office of Citywide Event Coordination and Management; Desiree Beach of the Street Activities Permit Office; and to all our neighbors on our beautiful block of West 52nd Street between 10th and 11th Avenues for making this unique neighborhood in Northern Hell’s Kitchen a new arts corridor.
This program is made possible in part with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature.
