José Can Speak

Café Con Leche is proud to present José Can Speak!

Written and directed by Linda Nieves-Powell, award-winning writer of Yo Soy Latina!, the monologues in José Can Speak explore the lives and relationships of Latino men from the perspective of Latinas.

Linda conceived of the idea of Latina women performing as their male counterparts while touring the country with her plays, Yo Soy Latina! and Soul Latina. She says, "Male audience members would always ask me when I was going to write a male version of the Latino experience and I would always answer, I’m not a man, so why don’t you try it." But after numerous requests she decided to take on the challenge.

Inspired by real people, the monologues in José Can Speak range from comical to serious and explore a variety of topics. From the war in Iraq, to the guy at the Copa looking for love, or the gay Latino who marries a woman to get his father off his back. Performed as a series of colorful and diverse monologues, this show will entertain, educate, and provoke insightful thought about what truly resides in the heart of a Latino man as told by the Latinas.
