“Audiences feeling besmirched by the tawdry tenor of politics today … doubtless will enjoy reliving a time when optimism and hope didn’t sound like empty promises,” the San Jose Mercury said in a review.

The director of RFK, Marshall W. Mason, is a legendary American theater director, educator, and author, who currently resides in San Miguel de Allende. He was the founder and for eighteen years Artistic Director of the Circle Repertory Company in New York City and is the 2016 Tony Award winner for Lifetime Achievement in the Theater.

“This production came about from my desire to do something for the Democrats Abroad,” Marshall said, “and also to do something for the Playhouse, where I brought Hard Travelin’ with Woody last April.”

“The idea of Bobby Kennedy talking to us today is what interests me,” he continued. “The drama concerns him running for office and dealing with his brother’s death, mainly between 1964 and 1968.”

The opening night performance of the bio-drama on October 28 at 5pm is a benefit for Democrats Abroad San Miguel de Allende. There are two additional performances on October 29, a 3pm matinee and a 7:30pm evening show.

RFK is played by David Arrow, who receiving his training at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in England. Originally from San Jose, California, David made his artistic home at the Circle Rep Lab in New York after drama school. He received the San Francisco Bay Area Critics Award for Best Actor for his role as RFK.

The play was written by Jack Holmes, who performed RFK in New York in 2005 and received critical performance nominations for his work. Jack also played Robert Kennedy in the 2014 film Cesar Chavez, which was filmed in Mexico.

“This play is like an evening with RFK brought back to life to remind us of the real American Dream that we used to chase and believe in. I was amazed how resonant and potent the words of this man have proven to be.” –NYTheatre.com

Tickets to the benefit performance for Democrats Abroad on October 28 are 350 pesos and include a glass of wine at a Reception to Meet the Artist after the show. Tickets to the two performances on October 29 are 200 pesos.

Tickets may be purchased at Galeria Ensueños, 57A Mesones at Reloj, 10:30 am to 2:30pm daily except Tuesday, and at the door one hour before the performance.
