Desde el Puente Navidad Official

Speaking of the plays Anthony Chase says-“they are quite good”

“The ensemble has gotten just so strong. They’ve proven that they have some staying power”

“I was quite impressed”

Check out what Anthony Chase of WBFO’s Theater Talk had to say this morning here! 

And Ben Siegel of the Buffalo News says:

“There’s a special gift waiting for you at the Manny Fried Playhouse, where Raíces Theatre Company’s one-act play festival, “Desde el Puente: Christmas Edition,” has opened. Do what you must, in the bustle of your holiday plans, to get yourself a ticket before it closes on Dec. 17.

“Victoria Pérez’s “Pa Chi Cha” breathes beautiful breath into a story of a father battling addiction, and a daughter who wants to move forward. Director Ingrid Córdova lets this intimate conversation air out its grievances and take a sweet step forward. In this one, there’s strength in the void, where words aren’t enough. Lissette DeJesus and Rolando Martin Gómez give captivating performances.”

Anthony Alcocer’s “A Brief 3 Minutes” fights the clock to pack a divided family’s angst into a monitored visit at the border. If this doesn’t rush your blood, then you haven’t been paying close-enough attention to our country’s immigration debate.”

“Melinda Capeles-Rowe and Smirna Mercedes-Pérez shine here as a frantic, gushy mothers.”

“The evening’s final beat, capping off a festive and hilarious “Parranda 101,” is a stunning reminder of the will to survive and thrive amid the world’s many storms.”
