Newark, NJ--(HISPANIC PR WIRE)--November 20, 2006--The New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents “a powerhouse evening of biting satire” (Back Stage) – Rick Najera’s Latinologues(TM) – celebrating the Latino experience in America at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center on Thursday, November 30, at 7:30 pm; Friday, December 1, at 7:30 pm; Saturday, December 2, at 3 & 8 pm; and Sunday, December 3, at 2:30 & 7 pm, in the Victoria Theater. Tickets are $38, and may be purchased by telephone at 1-888-GO-NJPAC (1-888-466-5722), at the NJPAC Box Office at One Center Street in downtown Newark, or by visiting the NJPAC website at http://www.njpac.org.
Entertainment Weekly writes that “the laughs are loud and abundant” in Latinologues, of razor-sharp monologues that paint an unforgettable portrait of the experience of Latino people in modern American culture. The creation of writer Rick Najera (Mad TV, In Living Color), the show also provides a brilliant showcase for emerging Latino talent, finding humor and poignancy in everything from political issues such as border patrol to a desperate beauty queen from East L.A.
Latinologues had its Broadway debut in September 2005, in a 12-week engagement that was extended four weeks by popular demand – the first all-Latino play (written, created, produced, directed and starring entirely by Latinos) in the history of Broadway. At NJPAC, the cast of Latinologues will include Najera, Idalis De Leon, Carlo D’Amore, Eugenio Derbez and Alessandra Rosaldo.
A prolific actor, writer and director whose work has been seen on stage, film and television, Rick Najera is perhaps best known for his contributions to two TV sketch-comedy classics, Mad TV and In Living Color. A two-time nominee for the Writers Guild of America award, Najera has also written for dramatic television, and recently created the series BBQ Bill for Innertube, CBS’s new internet channel. He is also the author of six plays, three of which have been collected and published under the title Pain of the Macho.
