Teatro Milagro Presents El Payaso

El Payaso

A bilingual play by Teatro Milagro

Written by Emilio Rodriguez Directed by Georgina Escobar 

Amidst chaos, confusion, and war with Americans, a community of Nicaraguans were able to share their culture, their stories and their lives with one American who was willing to listen. "El Payaso" invites the audience on the journey of an incredible man and the extraordinary people with whom he unexpectedly connected. Told through the eyes of a young Latino making the journey thirty years later, as he encounters the people who are still carrying on the work in Nicaragua, sharing their vibrant and dynamic memories that the community will never forget, stories that solidify the message on Linder’s headstone,  "La luz que encendió brillará para siempre". The light he lit will shine forever.
En medio del caos, la confusión y la guerra con los estadounidenses, una comunidad de nicaragüenses pudo compartir su cultura, sus historias y sus vidas con un americano que estaba dispuesto a escuchar. "El Payaso" invita a la audiencia en el viaje de un hombre increíble y las personas extraordinarias con las que inesperadamente se conectó. Dijo a través de los ojos de un joven latino que hace el viaje treinta años más tarde, cuando se encuentra con las personas que todavía llevan a cabo el trabajo en Nicaragua, compartiendo sus memorias vibrantes y dinámicas que la comunidad nunca olvidará, historias que solidifican el mensaje de Linder lápida, "La luz que encendió brillará para siempre". La luz que él encendió brillará para siempre.
