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

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."
