TIMES SQUARE PINERO (Stage Reading) Friday, January 20, 2012 at the Roy Arias Theater, 43rd St. NYC, NY A MUST SEE. Times Square’s Pinero. Great performance and real raw “New York City” experience of the spoken word written and directed by the multi talented Antone Pagan based on the poetry of the prolific poet and playwright Miguel Pinero. Pinero’s life story is manifested through his poems. Last night’s performance at the Roy Aires Theater, part of the Times Square International Theater Festival was brilliant! The cast outstanding. The audience was captivated and enveloped by the acoustics that resonated throughout the theater by the sounds, music and great talent of the various pieces. Also included were short segments of “Short Eyes” and “Midnight Moon Over the Greasy Spoon”. This is a real NYC experience that exposes the talent and brilliant and intense writings of Miguel Pinero and “his New York”. Raw spoken word performed by a great cast. Latin inspired music, as well as oldies are incorporated into the performance. Most enjoyable was “To Be With You” sang by the talented vocalist Jacqueline Ramos. This limited Pinero poetry performance is a must see the next time it is on stage. Pa’lante!!! — with Shaheed K Woods, Susan Rybin, Rick Reid, Gerard Adimando, Luis Salgado, Malachy Murray, Antone Pagan, Jackie Ramos, Jose Sanchez and Rick Rivera.
Featuring – Ray Cordero, Antone Pagán, Rick Rivera, Malachy Murray, Roy Arias, Luis Salgado and Susan Rybin. * “Luis Salgado kicks it and eloquently expresses how Pinero “Dared to Go Beyond decades ago with his work” and lived the dream of Art.
His words and connection to Pinero’s material touched us all. Vaya Cheveron!” Antone Pagán.
