Posted by: Coronado Arts 4 months ago

New Yorkers are a disaffected bunch; in public they can seem blind to their surroundings, always fiddling with a BlackBerry or iPod and at all costs avoiding eye contact. Yet line Central Park with miles of orange gates, or install some temporary man-made waterfalls on the East River, and these urban dwellers shed their recalcitrance and become positively giddy.

Cartas desde el Muro/Letters from the Wall
Posted by: Sherril Altstadt 4 months, 3 weeks ago

Dave Rivas' play, "Cartas desde el Muro" translated as, "Letters from the Wall," is an emotional, insightful and honest telling of the journey individuals have embarked upon to make their way north and cross into the United States.  The play is currently in its run here in Coronado and will close out its run in Chula Vista, at the Bay Front Charter School next weekend.  The playwright penned his heartfelt appreciation of the production in his letter to the co-directors, Kim Strassburger of the Coronado School of the Arts and Linda Libby, of the Bay Front Charter School.  He expressed his gratitude to all involved for bringing his words to life on stage.
