41: A Latino Story: Puerto Rican Nocturne with Angel Mendes-Soto

41: A Latino Story: Puerto Rican Nocturne with Angel Mendes-Soto

First of all, a disclaimer: No wine bottles were opened in this week's episode, but you certainly don't need a drink to enjoy this week's guest.

Angel Mendez-Soto grew up in New York City’s East Harlem (El Barrio), and he's a man with a storied career in theatre. He has been a member of Su Teatro, directed by Anthony J. Garcia, for over 40 years. In the 1980’s he was also a member of the the Black theatre company Eulipions, directed by Jo Bunton-Keel. Angel is a former recipient of the Mayor’s Excellence in the Arts Award. Earlier this year he portrayed Grandpop in the Theatreworks production of Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue at the ENT Center for the Arts in Colorado Springs.

Paul has known Angel for years, but the reason he's coming on the show now is because he's currently in Puerto Rican Nocturne, a powerful historical drama which will be at The Bug Theatre in North Denver from August 11th to the 21st. To grab your tickets, click here.

Paul and Angel dive into Angel's background on-stage, his experiences with telling Latino stories, and the importance of the story behind Puerto Rican Nocturne.
