'Ask a Mexican' the play debuts next week in NYC

ask_a_mexican_logo-thumb-200x200.jpgGustavo Arellano, creator of the ¡Ask a Mexican! column syndicated out of the OC Weekly, writes today that "I've been sitting on this announcement for months, partly because I fully expected it to fall through."

He goes on: "The play will get its first-ever reading next Friday courtesy of the Atlantic Theater Company, the award-winning Off-Broadway outfit co-founded by David Mamet (who long ago sent me a book expressing his admiration of my columna) and William H. Macy. It'll be part of their Latino Mixfest, an annual showcase of Latino-themed plays from across the country that offers public readings and workshops for aspiring playwrights...and me."
