Men On the Verge of A His-Panic Breakdown

This series of monologues chronicles the lives of various Latino immigrants dealing with transcultural shock of race and gender identity known as the “Hispanic breakdown.” The play is bracketed by the misadventures of the naive Frederico or “The Gay Little Immigrant That Could” who arrives in Los Angeles during the first day of the 1992 riots and believes he’s witnessing the filming of another Lethal Weapon sequel.  Other characters include Vinnie, a kept boy being asked to leave the home of his wealthy sugar daddy because he’s turned 30; Edward, a Latino actor passing for Anglo who gets a Latino part and has to deal with his real identity; the Demon Roommate, a lonely young man with an apartment a little too close to the airport; Paco, a Cuban restauranteur who was imprisoned by the Communists in Cuba for being gay and has now been exiled by his right-wing Miami family for the same reason; the Teacher, a stuffy, sexually repressed English-language instructor who abuses his Latino students when they can’t learn properly the “language of Princess Di”; and La Gitana, a drag Flamenco dancer struggling with AIDS as he stages his final performance. ADULTS ONLY.
