On the evenings of Thursday, July 19; Friday, July 20; and Saturday, July 21 Hyde Jackson Square Main Street and Escena Latina Teatro will be celebrating our 6th annual Teatro en el Parque. This year we will be producing the play, Cumbia de mi Corazón, by Toby Campion and will be performed by Escena Latina Teatro. It will be acted in Spanish with English translations projected on a giant video screen. Prior to each show we'll set up our Café en el Parque featuring complementary live music, delicious food from local restaurants and offerings from local businesses.
Cumbia de mi Corazón, by Toby Campion, is set in heaven with the protagonist trying to capture the heart of his wife. Toby Campion was inspired to write the triology to explore how memories are triggered by music as well as his love of cumbia music, which is based upon tri-cultural components.
On Thursday and Friday nights the Café will open at 6:00 pm and on Saturday night the Café will open at 5:00 pm. The play will begin at 7:15 pm each night.
In case of rain or inclement weather, the play will be moved to the J.F. Kennedy Elementary School at 7 Bolster Street around the corner from Mozart Park.
The Jamaica Plain News calendar is open to all local organizations and businesses.
