“We are thrilled to be back live; it’s been a huge effort. Thus, we’re proud of the team’s work,” said Pietro González, LaMicro’s co-founder and director. “This play is about very solitary characters suffering with frustrations, couple’s feuds, traumas, relationship worries, be it sexual or economic. This’s something we can all relate to.”

It will play at The Chain Theater (312 W. 36th St., 4th floor, Manhattan) on Thursday, June 23, Friday, June 24, and Saturday, June 25 at 7:30 pm; and on Sunday, June 26 at 3:00 pm.
Tickets are $25 for general admission or $20 for students and can be purchased at Brown Paper Tickets.
In addition to its stage productions, LaMicro Theater, founded in 2003 with the mission to present high-quality Spanish, Latin American, and U.S. Latino theater in English and bilingual productions, has created an educational program at the Sunnyside Public Library, offering a Children’s Theater Workshop which has always closed with a final presentation opened to the public and based on an original children’s story adapted to the theater. LaMicro has also had a Reading Series called Escena Sur that varies each year. It takes the format of a mini-festival, and it has consisted of public staged readings offered to New York City audiences. Finally, LaMicro Theater has an English program to teach English to speakers of other languages (ESOL) using Applied Theater techniques as a creative tool.
