American audiences stand to gain some insight into another culture from the translation of 'Made in Lanus', an Argentinian play opening tonight at Annenberg Center which is presented as part of Philadelphia's Festival Latino. Performed in Spanish with simultaneous English translation, the play by Nelly Fernandez Tiscornia recounts a couple's return to their Argentinian home town after 10 successful years in the United States. Philadelphia's Festival Latino is a week-long celebration of Latin American culture co-sponsored by International House and Annenberg Center. It also includes a concert and films. Made in Lanus features Luis Brandoni, an actor and playwrite, and Marta Bianchi, a film and television actress. The show opens today in the Harold Prince Theatre at 1 p.m. Other performances are tonight at 7 p.m., tomorrow at 1 p.m. at Saturday and Sunday at 8 p.m. Tickets are $7 for students, available at the Annenberg box office. As part of Festival Latino, International House will present contemporary films from Mexico, Argentina and Colombia through Sunday. ARTSComments powered by Disqus
