Teatro en el Parque
July 27, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 5:00pm, repeating until July 29, 2017
Come to Mozart Park to enjoy live outdoor theater with Escena Latina Teatro performing Botánica and enjoy dinner at our pop-up cafe featuring delicious complimentary food from neighborhood restaurants and music starting at 5pm. Show starts at 7pm. Play is in Spanish with English subtitles on a giant video monitor.
Botánica, by Dolores Prida, is a comedy that takes place in an herb shop where the venerable Doña Geno, a spiritual leader in the community, concocts love potions, divines the future and dispenses spiritual cures. Originally set in New York, Escena Latina Teatro has adapted the play to Boston. The play touches on the very current issue of gentrification and the consequent displacement of the Latino community in Jamaica Plain.
This production will feature Yoruba inspired art by local artist, Stephen Hamilton.
The Jamaica Plain News calendar is open to all local organizations and businesses.
