The Barefoot Theatre Company in New York held a staged reading of my full-length script “The Ballad of Alejandro Lopez” on June 17, 2013 at the historic Cherry Lane Theatre in Manhattan. (Historic because it’s a stage where Edward Albee and Sam Shepard have also had some of their works debut.)

More details on the show here.

Here are some photos, courtesy of Barefoot.
