“Finding ways to reach out to diverse audiences is an important part of the company’s goal of becoming a regional theater, said Kelly Hilliard Roush, Executive Director of the Classic Theatre.”
“De León, a respected theater artist now on Classic’s board, can personally attest to the fact that there is an audience for Spanish-language and Hispanic-themed works. Much of his original work is in that wheelhouse — including deep-dives into the lives and work of Spanish poet and playwright Federico García Lorca and composer Agustín Lara — and he often plays to packed houses…Next up is a two-weekend run of ‘Burning Patience,’ which is built around the work of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, in July, and a stage adaptation of Rudolfo Anaya’s classic novel ‘Bless Me, Ultima’ opening in February.” – Deborah Martin, San Antonio Express News
