Event Description

24th STreet Theatre brings Mexico’s Viaje Redondo Producciones to Los Angeles with the U.S. premiere of a captivating and poignant story about friendship that spans a lifetime. Seven-year-olds Emilia and Evangelina—born a few days apart in a small Mexican town–walk together to the train tracks with the child-like hope of boarding it and traveling to Rome. From that moment, their lives are forever tied together. The two return to the tracks five more times—at ages 13, 20, 40, 60 and 80—to share their dreams, worries and love stories.

"Norma and Julieta are two of the best actors in all of Mexico, and I’m thrilled to welcome them back to 24th STreet’s stage,” says executive Director Jay McAdams.  “We’ve been partnering with Mexican artists and organizations for several years now, part of our mission to make 24th STreet the ‘go-to place’ for adults and kids to share some of the most sophisticated and provocative art for families seen anywhere in the U.S.”

Recognized by the LA Weekly as one of the “Top 10 Plays We Want to See in 2012,” Rome at the End of the Line premiered in April 2011 at the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitanaʼs theater “La Casa de la Paz,” located in Mexico Cityʼs Colonia Roma. Now, Rome at the End of the Line continues 24th STreet Theatre’s ongoing, critically acclaimed tradition of presenting work in Spanish with English supertitles, including La Razón Blindada, which was honored with the LA Weekly 2011 Production of the Year Award, and El Ogrito, named a “Critic’s Choice” by the Los Angeles Times.

Rome at the End of the Line opens on Saturday, September 15 and runs through October 7. Tickets are $12-$15. 24th STreet Theatre is located at 1117 West 24th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90007-1725.
