Many believe the bulk of the Dominican American experience in New York City lies in Washington Heights, but in the unexpected corners of now gentrified upper mid-town are remnants of what once was: Lucecita Ortensia Cruz is one of only a handful of Dominican immigrants that stubbornly remains in this neighborhood. A sudden death in the family forces her son, Julio César, to return to the City after a five year self-imposed absence. In the course of two nights they attempt to rekindle the love and appreciation for each other and their Dominican roots. But hidden secrets are unexpectedly revealed and threaten to destroy an already thin bond.

The tickets: General Admission $10.00 and CUNY Students with ID: $7.00. For more information or reservations, please visit us at http://www.laluzdeuncigarrillo.com/ or call the box office at (718) 262-5375.
