Preview of Crime Against Humanity a Huge Success


On Saturday, January 26, 2008, Michael Reyes of the Batey Urbano and the National Boricua Human Rights Network (NBHRN) sponsored a sneak preview of six scenes of the play “Crime Against Humanity,” a play about the time spent in prison by the Puerto Rican political prisoners, to community members and individuals involved in the theater/drama/art industry. The evening proved to be an enormous success, with over 70 persons attending the preview. Six complete scenes of the play were unveiled, and elicited laughs, tears and intense emotions from the audience. The actors, all in their late teens and early 20’s, were applauded for their efforts. The evening closed with José E. López, Executive Director of the Juan Antonio Corretjer Puerto Rican Cultural Center and brother to Oscar López Rivera, giving an incredibly moving speech about how much the development of this play meant to him and his family. March 3, 2008 will premiere the full play of 27 scenes at the Batey Urbano.
