About the Play

The short play "The African American and Latino Living History Museum"...portrayed famous figures of American history while a guided tour of about thirty people gathered around each one in turn...The performance was directed by Thomas DeFrantz, Brenda L. Cotto-Escalera, and Ayida Mthembu and used the set of the ongoing musical Grand Hotel. The sharp, quick vignettes were designed to give the audience a view of the successes of the individuals and a broader insight into the cultural traditions.
