This month, Detroit-based playwright, actor and artist-in-residence at the University of Michigan Musical Society, Emilio Rodriguez unveils his original play, Spin, courtesy of Theatre Nova. The play, set in a homeless shelter for LGBTQIA teens, follows the two main characters, Mila and Angelo, as they struggle with the realities of being a gay person of color in America. Incorporating spoken word poetry and hip hop, Rodriguez’s dramatic work with splashes of levity will impart audiences with a better understanding of contemporary America. Directed by Kennikki Jones, Spin runs through July 10.
