Albizu Campos Staged Reading

Friday, May 16th, 2008

The Last Revolutionary: Don Pedro Albizu Campos by Alberto Vazquez

I’d like to invite you to a stage reading June 2nd @ 7PM.  It is at The Producer’s Club: 358 W. 44 St. / Crown Theater.  Check attachment.

I have written an political drama epic with music and dance that is based on a true event. I think you will find it both a remarkably conceived and extremely timely theater project.

Don Pedro Albizu Campos was the brilliant Harvard graduate from Puerto Rico.  In the 1920’s he began his quest to free Puerto Rico from colonialism.  He dedicated his life struggling against America’s hold on the island.  After years of incarceration and radiation torture, he succumbed in 1965, but his iconic personality lives as an inspiration for Latinos alike.
