Interview with a Mexican is based on conversations with Gustavo Arellano, columnist and author of Ask a Mexican and Taco USA. Adapted for the stage by Anthony J. Garcia, Executive Artistic Director of Denver’s Su Teatro, it is a carnival of conversations and random perspectives about what it means to be a Mexican, inside or outside the US. Development of the work was funded by the National Performance Network, which has as commissioning partners Su Teatro, MACLA, Colorado State University-Pueblo, and the NHCC.

What happens when a Dominican boy in Queens—with an imagination far beyond his shell, who won’t go anywhere without his nerf gun and is obsessed with James Bond—finds out that the real James Bond was Dominican? Written and performed by Chris Rivas, The Real James Bond Was…Dominican! is a true story, about how Porfirio Rubirosa was Ian Fleming’s inspiration for Bond, and how this discovery sets off a whole tragi-comic journey for a young Dominican actor-to-be. It is a young man’s guide to love, sex, color, code-switching, whitewashing, success, fake-it-till-you-make-it, and the roller coaster ride of finding one’s true self.
