Stage Raw: Labor Theater
The Tony Awards are this Sunday, being broadcast 8 p.m. on CBS, Eastern and Pacific Time. Don't look for any of the designer or choreography noms to be broadcast; they're just not interesting enough for the Network.
Cornerstone Theater Company presents a new tour by Teatro Jornalero Sin Fronteras (Day Laborer Theater Without Borders), featuring performances at day labor sites on Monday, June 15 and Tuesday, June 16. The project of creating a sustainable, independent theater troupe by and for day laborers and domestic workers has been made possible by funding from the Ford Foundation.
