THEATER | "Where Coffee Meets Culture"


In its first appearance of 2016, the Rochester Latino Theatre Company (RLTC) will present a bilingual production as part of the Cuentos Del Corazon (Stories from the Heart) series. The one act play, "Where Coffee Meets Culture," focuses on a group of writers who meet at a coffee shop to share "personal narratives about Latino identity and the process of learning from and about each other." The script is predominantly in English and beginner Spanish, and is directed by Annette Ramos. It features eight local Latino/a actors, including 11-year-old Paola Laboy. In keeping with the theme, coffee and Latino desserts will be served. The performance is part of "Latino Americans: 500 Years of History," produced by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association (ALA) — a nationwide program that "supports the exploration of the rich and varied history and experiences of Latinos."

"Where Coffee Meets Culture" will play at 1 p.m. on Saturday, February 6, in the Kate Gleason Auditorium at the Central Library, 115 South Avenue. Free. 428-8150;
