WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Puerto Rican Obituary is one of the seminal poems of the migrant experience in search of dreams. At times witty, angry, sarcastic and hopeful it is a no holds barred epic. Set to live music and performed by five actors and one musician, Pregones stages the story during a wake held at La Santa Iglesia de la Madre de los Tomatoes/The Holy Church of Our Mother of Tomatoes where Olga, Milagros, Juan, Miguel and Manuel come to life and reminisce on their life's struggle as migrants in New York City.
