Theater in San Miguel: Past, Present, Future
By Robin Loving Rowland
For a town its size – especially for one in the middle of Mexico, San Miguel is blessed with lots of high-quality English-language theater. Long-time residents wax eloquently about previous productions, current actors do same about current productions, and then there’s always great gossip about the future.
Hear all about San Miguel’s vibrant theater past, present and future when actor/director/producer Michael Gottlieb shares with Rotary on Tuesday, October 7, at 12:30pm at Hotel Mision, Salida de Querétaro 1, across from Salón Los Pinos where La Pulga is held.
Gottlieb came to San Miguel with acting, directing, marketing and advertising experience from larger communities including Los Angeles and San Francisco. He has been involved here in 20 productions at Teatro Santa Ana and 30 at Playreaders at St. Paul’s Church. Gottlieb is the current president of Player’s Workshop, the oldest theater company in San Miguel, operating since 1982.
Most recently, Gottlieb portrayed artist Mark Rothko for Players Workshop’s production of Red, by John Logan, for which the house was packed and reviews still rave on. He also is well known for his novel, The Fourth Wall.
Rotary meets the most pressing needs of the world by working in the most efficient way to produce sustainable solutions with global impact one precious life at a time. For more information, contact President Tony Ronci at email@example.com.
