The year was 1834, and 14-year-old Afong Moy was the first Chinese woman ever seen in the continental United States. Viewers can pay to watch her eat shrimp and vegetables with chopsticks in an “exotic” habitat. They watched her walk. They stared blankly at her little feet. But she is honored to share her culture in a land of opportunity. Her translator, protector, and only interlocutor was A Dong, a Chinese who has lived in the United States for decades. Under the watchful eyes of Atung and the audience, Afong grew up and toured the United States as part of a tour.

Together, our two protagonists watch a young nation struggle to define itself, making a poetic and incisive look at culture, imperialism, and Western philosophy. Visually stunning and undeniably clever, the Chinese lady illuminates a not-so-black-and-white part of our history.

A playful comedy that incorporates all the rich complexity of Shakespeare’s work, Much Ado About Nothing is a lively, surprisingly timely musing on gossip, gender roles, and romantic stupidity. After a decisive victory on the battlefield, Don Pedro, Claudio and Benedict arrive in the Sicilian port city of Messina. Claudio falls in love with their master’s daughter, Hero, as they attend the post-war celebrations at the Governor’s Manor. Meanwhile, Benedict fights a different kind of battle with the hero’s cousin, the witty Beatrice. Cupid-like characters conspire to bring our quadruple lovers together, while darker forces try to separate them. Can love really conquer all when the combined forces of deceit, betrayal, and jealousy get in the way? Much Ado About Nothing is comedy, but also discreet. Elegant, yet down to earth. It’s mischievous and undeniably joyful. It might just be the most famous (and most popular) Renaissance rom-com in the world.

Directed by Denver Center’s own Chris Coleman (Oklahoma!, Twelfth Night), with set design by Klara Zieglarova (Jersey Boys, Kate Rattlesnake) and Tom Hagman (Sweeney Todd, p. Twelve Nights), this refreshing spin on a 400-century classic is not to be missed.

Art Basel is about to begin, and Marianne, the director of a funky modern art gallery, has a serious problem on her hands. Her showroom is an active crime scene. Part crime comedy, part TV novel and 100% chistoso, the show centers on Marianna and her improv support system, including her intern Carolina, a young police officer named Juan, and her mother Ace Tera, the star of a legendary film and TV insistence on saving the show.

Sleek and dynamic, this world-premier play takes a light-hearted look at the struggle many Latinos go through to gain access to cultural and artistic spaces that have traditionally excluded them. It examines Latino representation in the media, fear and uncertainty in adulthood, art as a profession, love and family. Through it all, you won’t stop laughing or dancing in your seat!

The ups and downs of married life are common no matter where you live. A middle-aged American couple travels to Egypt for business and vacation, and their relationship is put to the test when old connections spark new temptations. As eager tourists strive to connect with Egyptian culture in an authentic way, they end up with more than they thought, as long-dormant marital problems begin to seep through. Drawing on the political, cultural and religious realities of life in the region, this witty drama sets loyalty and appeal in the heat of Cairo as its characters grapple with the ever-changing struggle to stay true to their partner.

Yussef El Guindi, winner of the Outstanding Middle Eastern American Playwright Award, specializes in “cultural and geographic displacement, from estranged couples to the promises and frustrations of immigrants, and the ways people maneuver through exoticism and belonging” (The Seattle Times) .
