The Bridge Initiative is a Tempe, AZ based, women-led artistic collective that uses theatre and media to build bridges between communities. The collective recently partnered with Estrella Mountain Community College Performing Arts Center to present Like Heaven, an original comedy written by School of Theatre, Film & Television Associate Professor Elaine Romero. The play was originally presented by the Arizona Repertory Theatre in 2018.
In a review for Broadway World, Herbert Pain said “Romero has established herself as a compelling voice through which the complexities of social and cultural issues – social justice, cultural heritage and personal identity – are illuminated.”
“Thanks to Romero’s craftsmanship as a writer, the play does not get weighed down by gravity but is instead buoyed with precisely drawn moments of humor. She has penned four very distinctive and relatable voices.”
The production will run through May 13, and more information is available here.Read the review on Broadway World
