There are plenty of reasons to see it during the short run, notes Su Teatros Mica Garcia de Benavidez, who took part in the networks jurying process: In Denver, theater in Spanish is a luxury; its not something we get every day. And this struck us as a show thats both solidly written and performed and that offers a different perspective on war than we usually get in the States, by pitting hard-core nationalism up against pacifist views. Plus, its treatment of immigrant issues crosses theatrical borders to strike a familiar chord with U.S. audiences.
