**This Saturday and Sunday Only**
The Actor's Workshop of Virginia is excited to present Call Me Boricua! at The Benjack Studio Theatre this weekend, September 18 at 8:00pm and September 19 at 3:00pm.
This special two-performance engagement is a fundraiser to support Todd Rosenlieb Dance and Virginia Ballet Theatre's Dance Scholarship Programs.
"Call Me Boricua!" tells the story of a native Puerto Rican who travels from Puerto Rico to America in 14,600 days. Mr. Melendez chronicles his experiences with wit, charisma and a wonderful self-deprecating charm. Nothing is sacred in the retelling of this journey, including everything from the excitement and heartbreak of first love to auditioning for shows in New York City and not being Puerto Rican enough for West Side Story.
All is not hilarious in this coming-of-age tale. Looking past the clever observations and hilarious characters, there are stories of personal challenges and private choices that have shaped Boricua into what he is today.
