Guadalupe in the Guest Room by Tony Meneses
Cast: Elise Santora, Colton Pratt, Miguel Nuñez, Lilli Hokama
Directed by James Bruenger-Arreguin
Guadalupe is living in her son-in-law Steve’s guest room while she works to translate the children’s books her deceased daughter has written. Overcome with grief and separated by a language barrier, the unlikely housemates struggle to communicate until brought together by the power of telenovelas. Guadalupe in the Guest Room is a funny and heartfelt celebration of new beginnings, breaking barriers, and a realization that understanding doesn’t always require speaking the same language. On stage through October 24.

Millibo Art Theatre
“The Guys” by Anne Nelson
Performed by Steve Emily and Anna Faye Hunter
Directed by Jim Jackson
Less than two weeks after the September 11th attacks, New Yorkers are still in shock. One of them, an editor named Joan, receives an unexpected phone call on behalf of Nick, a fire captain who has lost most of his men in the attack. He’s looking for a writer to help him with the eulogies he must present at their memorial services. Nick and Joan spend a long afternoon together, recalling the fallen men through recounting their virtues and their foibles, and fashioning the stories into memorials of words. In the process, Nick and Joan discover the possibilities of friendship in each other and their shared love for the unconquerable spirit of the city. As they make their way through the emotional landscape of grief, they draw on humor, tango, the appreciation of craft in all its forms—and the enduring bonds of common humanity. The Guys is based on a true story. Performances run Thursdays through Saturdays, October 14 through 30 at 7:30PM. Sunday Matinees at 2PM. For questions, call 719-465-6321.
