WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This one-man show is about brotherly love and the healing power of being able to say goodbye. Written and directed by Felix Rojas, Growing Up Gonzalez features Andres "Chulisi" Rodriguez as Johnny Gonzales, a Bronx native of Puerto Rican descent who is forced to clean out the apartment of his recently deceased younger brother, Cisco. In doing so, he discovers a treasure chest full of colorful, detailed personal notes left behind by Cisco. Pages and pages detail vibrant comic and tragic moments of the past. These innocent interpretations of love, life, and everything in between thrust Johnny into a magical journey of discovery and forgiveness in a pulsating and affectionate 1970s South Bronx.
