YO SOLO theatre festival of latino solo shows

I only got to see three of the YO SOLO Festival shows:  Sandra Delgado's beautiful, para Graciela; KJ Sanchez's fascinating tale of her father's legal odyssey in New Mexico, Highway 47; and Juan Francisco Villa's gritty, splendid, lyrical chronicle of life on the Lower East Side of New York, Empanada for a Dream.  Unfortunately, due to a personal scheduling issue, I was not able to see Rey Andujar's Antipoda.  But I heard he was great. Next year, I will have to buy the festival pass and see them all.  There's so much about Latino culture that I don't know, but I would like to.  I would say that I was entertained and impressed but that would be an understatement.  Catch the talented Ms. Delgado currently starring in Night Over Erzinga at  Juan (Solo) Francisco Villa's riveting performance reminded me of a young John Leguizamo/Raul Julia...  Check out Empanda for a Dream in Los Angeles later this month/November: and when it returns to Chicago!
