Ozzie Rodriguez has been the Director of the La Mama Archive since 1987. A bilingual playwright and actor, he is Founder and Artistic Director of two experimental theatre companies and the author of several plays (including Madre Del Sol / Mother Of The Sun, for which he received the Distinguished Contributions to Hispanic Culture Award). He has been Resident Director of Ellen Stewart’s La Mama Experimental Theater since the early 1970’s and has toured throughout the world as a member of the Great Jones Repertory and La Mama’s Umbria Company.
La MaMa’s collections offer an intimate perspective on major social, aesthetic, and political movements of the 20th and 21st centuries that resonate with histories of peoples across the globe. Join Ozzie as he tells the story of how La MaMa was founded and the ways in which it would change the landscape of American theatre through the work of Ellen Stewart and her cohort of playwrights, directors and actors. Explore the archive and hear the stories behind the props, costumes, posters and sets.
Tours begin at 1PM and typically will run as long as two hours.
