The Alchemy of 'Chronicle...'

Whereas "Chronicle of a Death Foretold" is an interesting novella and a noteworthy experiment in the works of Garcia Marquez it is not, to my mind, of the caliber of his finest achievements. It is an exercise in storytelling around the parable of a woman's shame and the frenzied violence that the account of her deflowerment whips up in a small, rural town long ago someplace to the south.

Hispanic Heritage

Jose´Sueiro shares his personal history and observations about DC's Spanish Language residential population

From Tumacácori to Porciúnula

From the halls of Jose Rafael Moneo's architectural masterpiece, the Spanish Ambassador's residence on Foxhall Road in Washington DC, H.E. Ramon Gil Casares and National Park Service (NPS) Director, Jonathan Jarvis recently celebrated the collaboration of the NPS with the Embassy of Spain to create the "Travel Itinerary for the Colonial Missions of the Southwest" (http://www.nps.gov/subjects/travelspanishmissions/index.htm).

Border Style Blues

    "El Paso Blue", the new English/Chicano language play currently performing at GALA Theatre conforms to standard; well produced, strongly acted and brilliantly directed; the set design powerful and the lighting unique.
    It's no accident that GALA Theatre has just received 6 Helen Hayes awards including best play of the season for Garcia Lorca's "Yerma". Rarely has Gala Theatre even received notice from the Hayes committee much less 6 awards topped by a play of the year in Spanish. Thus the Washington theatre establishment recognizes one of our long standing cultural jewels - El Teatro GALA.
