Men get a really bad rap, but they share the same needs and desires as the "other half" of humanity, and are equally as vulnerable. (If you don't believe me, just take a look at your man the next time he has a head cold.) Women can be very vocal about the burden of having false realities projected onto them, but men are fairly silent about handling these same issues. So what do some of the men, who are often seen as the most overt two-dimensionally manly cliche, have to say about it? You can find out this weekend by heading to MuCCC (142 Atlantic Ave.) to check out "Macho's Place," presented by Latino Theatre Productions and written and directed by Rochester's Nydia Rivera.
The show features Latino men from the community, and provides a look into the "male" experience within the Latino culture. "Macho's Place" is set in a local barber shop, performed in English, with some "Spanglish" and a few Spanish phrases, but is completely understandable and accessible to English speaking audiences. A question-and-answer period will follow the performances.
The show takes place Friday-Saturday, November 22-23, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, November 24, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Call 866-811-4111 to reserve tickets, or visit muccc.org.
