New Theatre presents its second World Premiere of the season: Road Through Heaven written by and starring Artistic Director Ricky J. Martinez, running May 17 â€“ June 2, 2013 (new dates) and directed by Carbonell nominated Margaret M. Ledford.
Road Through Heaven tells the story of a tension filled, sexually charged, lovers triangle as it unfolds on a forgotten Caribbean island, where the characters face questions of morality, life and death, the occult, and the realizing of their deepest desires. This beautifully lyrical play features New Theatreâ€™s Artistic Director Ricky J. Martinez (Carbonell nominated), New Theatre veterans Evelyn Perez, Javier Cabrera and making her New Theatre debut, Julissa Calderon; and supported by Production Stage Manager Jerry Jensen, Dramaturgs Jane G. Duncan and Steven A. Chambers, and Costume Designer K. Blair Brown.
Road Through Heaven has had readings at the Cuban Culture Week in NYC presented by The Cuban Artists Fund, and at Teatro Paraguas, MidnightChild Productions, Performance Network Theatre, Repertorio EspaÃ±ol, and Shotgun Productions.
