Her Name Is America

July 23 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

Worcester's Youth Poet Laureate, Adael Mejia, teams up with long-time friend, Jayson Dominguez, to bring a fresh form of theater! Experience this 21st century operatic rhapsody told through performance and synesthesia in art.

Relive the nostalgia through the eyes of an orphan being raised by his abuela. Adael named this play "Her Name Is America" after his grandmother, America Cepeda.

See a mural that runs across the PopUp wall and an art exhibit created by 4 independent female artists, displayed for public viewing in the PopUp.

Make sure to stop by for food and drinks brought to you by authentic tastes of Worcester.
