ZEZE THE X: Teatro Vision brings Sandra Cisnero's widely loved and widely read novel to the stage.

Sandra Cisneros’ 1984 coming-of-age novella is adapted for the stage in Teatro Vision’s first youth production. Featuring a cast of local performers ages 12 to 18, the story of Esperanza Cordero’s life on Mango Street—including her newfound friendships, struggles with her family, and even sexual abuse—is told from the perspective of these young actors. Performed in English with Spanish supertitles, tickets to this Chicanx theater company’s production are offered at a sliding scale, so patrons can choose to pay anywhere from $10-40 to attend. The production runs through May 20. (AS)
