Latino Theater in Rhode Island | ¿Qué Onda?

The relationship between tradition and innovation is not always easy, but it’s in the spirited dialogue between those two values that we continually learn how to reach more people and how to engage audiences more deeply. Trinity Repertory Theater’s bilingual production of Romeo and Juliet in partnership with Rhode Island Latino Arts fits squarely in the heart of that conversation between loyalty and innovation.

The truth is that this project has generated both excitement and concern among Latinos in Rhode Island. I am not surprised, and in fact, I’m excited.
