"Nuyorican show spices up Off-Broadway!"
*THE DAILY NEWS* "The punch of the individual stories will keep you pinned to your seat!"
*BACK STAGE* "Overflowing with colorful detail and smartly observed anecdotes, this one man show is an affectionate, funny, and spicily authentic collage of growing up Puerto Rican in the Bronx of the 1970s." -Ron Cohen
*NEW YORK TIMES* "...Pretty funny!" -Katherine Rampell
*Broadway World.com* "The play is a bittersweet comedy of two brothers growing up in the Puerto Rican section of the Bronx, whose coming of age is marked by the untimely death of their father. One actor plays both parts. The play is filled with the hearty characters, flavors and textures of The Bronx in the 70's and displays a very witty understanding of life".
*Show Business Weekly* "Rojas employs an ingenious framing device to ensure that the evening feels like a full length narrative rather than a collection of short stories". -Ethan kanfer
*THE PUERTO RICAN TRAVELING THEATER* "ELECTRIFYING" -Miriam Colon
