Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, Queens Theatre will present a thought-provoking story about Latino identity and the immigrant experience.
On May 5, Mark-Eugene Garcia’s award-winning play, “Eight Tales of Pedro,” will begin its run with music by Luis D’Elias. The play will feature music by Luis D’Elias, who has been with the play since its inception. The cast consists entirely of Latino actors, four of whom were part of the original cast at the play’s 2018 premiere. That same year, the play won the UnFringed Festival Best of the Festival Prize. Most recently, he won the 2021 Jerry Harrington Award for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Musical Theatre.
