About the Playwright

Carmen Rivera, regarded as one of the most prolific U.S. Latina playwrights, is the creative force behind box office blockbuster’s such as “CELIA: The Life and Music of Celia Cruz” (co-written with Candido Tirado) and “La Lupe: My Life, My Destiny.” Her play, LA GRINGA, winner of the 1996 OBIE Award, is the longest running Latino show in Off Broadway history.

About the Production

Rivera’s work on LA CAIDA DE RAFAEL TRUJILLO spans more than five dedicated years of intensive scholarship, primary research, first-person interviews, as well as source material from CUNY’s acclaimed Institute for Dominican Studies and more.

This production will be directed by award-winning director Cándido Tirado and features a formidable pan-Latino cast: Iván Camilo (as Johnny Abbes), Johary Ramos (as ensemble/various roles), Adriana Sananes (as Doña María, wife of Gen. Trujillo), Marco Antonio Rodríguez (as Don Paco Escribano), Fermín Suárez (as Joaquin Balaguer), Ed Trucco (as Diplomat), Eva Cristina Vásquez (as the lover of Gen. Trujillo) and in the lead role of Trujillo, José Cheo Oliveras. Set design by Jorge Dieppa and lighting design by María Cristina Fusté.

Harry Nadal designed the historical costumes and Rubén Darío Cruz is the multimedia designer. For this production, noted Dominican scholar and historian José Novas has been the dramaturgical and cultural consultant and Bersaida Vega translated the play into Spanish.
