A Hilarious Comedy About Emigration-inmigration by Acclaimed Young Colombian Writer Jaime Espinal, With Original Live Music & Sound Design by the Band Los Tres Cerditos, Direct From Colombia! Designed & Directed by Angel Gil Orrios.
“Opening night is SMASH! In a high energy splash of on-stage talent,
the cast of No Problemo Amigo treats the audience to an inside-out look at immigration. We urge you to go see this play and enjoy it at the intimate theatre that has become so well recognized for its productions.” -OurLIC.com
“NO PROBLEMO AMIGO is a hit. The play’s layers delve into stereotypes of Americans and Hispanics with a funny, light undertone. At the same time it touches on social, political and cultural clashes that though are funny in the play, remind the audience of some of the struggles immigrants face when forced to adapt in a new land.
The bilingual play is Thalia Spanish Theatre’s signature style and the performance by the cast transcends language barriers, making it humorous in both languages.” -Queens Ledger
“Already an honored novelist in Colombia, his stage debut at the Thalia Spanish Theatre is a premier that will be remembered…. Bravo to producer/designer/director Angel Gil Orrios… with special kudos for his amazing stagecraft in the sets, lighting, and projections effects, which shame Spiderman by showing how much can be achieved with little budget and immense imagination”. -New York Theatre Buying Guide
