SPA 102 Honors Students Meet GALA Theatre Actors

Honors students from Martha Davis’s Spanish 102 class enjoyed an evening at GALA Hispanic Theater in Washington, DC on Saturday, March 8th in the company of a former U.S. ambassador to the Organization of American States, a Puerto Rican author and other dignitaries. They attended GALA’s production of “La señorita de Tacna,” a play about memory, storytelling, loyalty and betrayal by the Peruvian Nobel Laureate Mario Vargas Llosa. In the lobby afterwards, as the students discussed the amazingly versatile performance of the lead actor, Luz Nicolás, she and other cast members walked by. The students were very pleased to be able to meet Ms. Nicolás as well as Tim Pabon, who plays “la señorita’s” nephew, Augustín. Prof. Davis and her students thank the honors program for making this unforgettable experience possible.
