Mile Square Theatre | Quarter Rican
March 1 @ 8:00 pm - March 26 @ 8:00 pm
The world premiere of this fast-talking new comedy about the ins and outs of new parenting, mixed heritage, and what makes or breaks your child’s Latinx identity. Written by actor and Hoboken native Gabriel Hernandez, the play tells the story of 30-something Danny as he visits the local kids’ playground —super cute baby in tow— and engages in hilarious banter and park bench philosophizing with another parent. The conversation is peppered with wild asides with Danny’s superlative and musical alter egos, MC Plátano, and DJ Quenepa.
Quarter Rican was incubated through the Pregones/PRTT Step Up Artist Residency program. Mile Square Theatre is proud to present this stunning world premiere from one of Hoboken’s great artists.
