El Último Preso Performs to a Full House at Montalban Theater

LéaLA presents, 'El Último Preso': Over the weekend, the cast of, the show starring, the Bichir family (Demian Bichir, Bruno Bichir, Odiseo Bichir) along with Reynaldo Rossano, and directed by, Alejandro Bichir performed to a full house in the Montalban Theater.

The lines outside the theater can been seen from blocks away, with some waiting till the last minute to be able to get tickets.

The comedy show was filled with laughs and good times from the cast and audiences. At the end show, the production was greeted with standing ovation.

El Último Preso is about thirst of power and the intransigence ofthe system.

The story takes place in a hypothetical country where the repressor system has been so brutal that no one is already willing to speak out against the government; to the point that the last political prisoner is willing to recant his subversive and revolutionary ideas to be released. This will bring endless tangles crazed where the police and the system question its rationale, for where there is no one to arrest, does it make sense to continue to exist? Police end probably arresting itself to justify their reason for being.

With the objective of expanding its programs by focusing on the diffusion of the culture and the arts of the Latino community in the City of Los Angeles, California, the University of Guadalajara has created one of the biggest and most ambitious projects around the promotion of the Spanish-language: LéaLA, the Los Angeles Spanish-language Book Fair.

The purpose of this event is to encourage reading and to promote books in Spanish, as well as the recognition of the Latino population, their culture and traditions. LéaLA is an initiative sponsored by the University of Guadalajara at Los Angeles and by the Guadalajara International Book Fair (FIL).
