The season kicks off with Pulitzer Prize-winner Quiara Alegría Hudes’s return to Signature for the second play in her Premiere Residency (following the 2016 world premiere of Daphne’s Dive), the stage adaptation of her memoir My Broken Language. The world premiere production, directed by Hudes and colliding monologue, literary reading, music, and movement in its depiction of an author growing up in a Puerto Rican family in Philadelphia, continues a momentous moment for the playwright: in 2021, she released the acclaimed book on which the play is based, and her Tony-nominated stage musical collaboration with Lin Manuel-Miranda, In the Heights, reached audiences around the world as a beloved major motion picture. (Hudes penned the book in the Broadway production and the film’s screenplay)

Interpreters: Justine Rivera, JO Welch, Frenchetta Perez
