Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center presents INTERVIEW WITH A MEXICAN!, May 6-7
The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center presents “Interview With A Mexican!”, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, May 6 and 7, 2022 at the historic Guadalupe Theater, 1301 Guadalupe St., San Antonio. The show starts at 8 p.m. with general admission of $12. “Interview with a Mexican!” is a traveling production of the Su Teatro Cultural & Performing Arts Center in Denver.
“Interview with a Mexican!” is an original play by Su Teatro Executive Artistic Director and Resident Playwright Anthony J. Garcia. It was inspired by Gustavo Arellano’s “Ask a Mexican” column using satire, humor and political incorrectness to examine stereotypes, anti-immigration policy and misconceptions foreigners have about Mexican culture. .
“We at Su Teatro are thrilled to bring this explosive and humorous piece to the Westside of San Antonio,” Garcia said. “The last time we performed at Teatro Guadalupe was in the early 1990s,” he added. “Su Teatro’s work and contribution to theater is widely recognized,” said Guadalupe Theater director Jorge Piña. “I’m very honored to have Su Teatro back on the Guadalupe stage.”
The production is made possible with support from the City of San Antonio Department of Arts and Culture and the National Performance Network.
