Step into the critic’s shoes Sunday at LALT

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

Art is never static. The last word can be typed on the page or the curtain can fall after the final scene, but the work still goes on. For instance, local playwright Robert Benjamin wrote “Parted Waters” and had it performed in Phoenix. Since then, the play has been through some revisions and Benjamin is ready to unveil “Parted Waters,” in its newest form to Los Alamos.

The presentation will be made through a staged reading, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at Los Alamos Little Theater. The reading will be followed by a post-show discussion with the director, cast and playwright.

The reading is co-produced by Teatro Paraguas of Santa Fe. Additionally, several actors from Teatro Paraguas will participate in the reading. Argos MacCallum will play Reynaldo, Tom Romero will be Javier, Angelo Jaramillo will perform the role of Miguel and Lisa Friedland will play Rachel.

Fran Martone directs the play.   “Parted Waters” is about three generations of Hispanics struggling with their crypto-Jewish ancestry. Reynaldo, the oldest family member, embraces their heritage while his son, Javier, rejects it and the youngest family member, Miguel, is in the dark about his family’s past.
