ESPERANZA RISING opened last Friday. Pam Munoz Ryan, the author of the book, was on hand for talkbacks Friday and Saturday, and did a book signing on Saturday afternoon. There was another talkback on Sunday about immigration. The dramaturgs have also made a short film about immigration, which is playing in the lobby of the Cutler Majestic Theatre.
There are two more public performances–Friday at 7:30 and Saturday at 2pm. The blog has a lot more in depth information about the show, and there is a study guide available for download. When you come to the theater, make sure you visit the lower lobby and see the dramaturgical display.
Don’t miss this show!
