Bloodline Rumba Photos

Bloodline Rumba, my new play, had a great premiere on its opening night (2/3/16) at the University of Louisville’s (UofL) Thrust Theatre. It is presented by the African American Theatre Program of the UofL Theatre Arts Department, and directed by the phenomenal Nefertiti Burton.

Sidney Edwards—who plays Sara Santos, a young Afro-Cuban woman seeking to attend medical school in NYC—is seen in the photo below. Her fellow cast members are: Shaleen Cholera (Ernesto), Paula G. Lockhart (Abuela), Casey Moulton (Dr. Ramos), Ross Shenkar (Senor Prado), and Danielle Smart (Lola).

The play runs until Monday (2/8/16). For performance times and ticket information, please click here.

    • Toni,

      I’m glad to hear from you. I hope everything is going great in Panama. We need to stay in touch so I can visit when you’re in-country. I was disappointed to miss you last time.

      The play closed after a great run. But I’m looking forward to it having legs. I really want to have it done in Cuba. I’ll let you know.

      Best Regards,

      JC

  2. Congratulations John, the flier looks exciting. I know would that I would truly enjoy. Rumba is a powerful word, it commands attention.

    All the best,

      Thanks for the shout out. The play had a great run. The students were excellent, and the direction by Nefertiti Burton was stellar. My plan is to translate it into Spanish and have it premiere in Cuba.

      Best Regards,

      JC
