Adrienne Arsht Center to Host 10th Anniversary of Teo Castellanos' NE 2nd Avenue
The play depicts the lives of a Puerto Rican small time drug dealer, a deprived African-American young lady, a Haitian jitney driver, a Cuban-Jewish grandfather, a Rasta Man, an African American adolescent trying to find his footing in life, a Cuban rafter and a gay man, who each take the audience on a memorable journey through the intense streets of Miami.

In addition to NE 2nd Avenue, Castellanos is the author of the one-man trilogy War, Revolution, and the Projects. His most recent D-Projects work, Fat Boy begins touring in February, 2012.
