La MaMa ETC, in association with Magis Theatre Company, will present Calderon's Two Dreams, a repertory performance of two classic works by Spanish Golden Age playwright Pedro Calderon de la Barca.

The Off-Broadway show will feature the two different versions of Calderon’s Life Is a Dream, considered by many to be Spain’s Hamlet. The playwright wrote the first version in 1635 and again in 1677, with drastic changes. Both plays are being revived in repertory in the U.S. for the first time.

Directed by George Drance, Alex Randrup and Kelly Johnston, performances are set to begin February 10, 2017, at La MaMa’s Ellen Stewart Theatre. The cast will feature Ali Kennedy Scott, Gilbert Molina, Margi sharp, Erika Iverson, Joseph McGranaghan, Daniel Solomon, Gabriel Portuondo, Danielle Delgado, Dennis Vagas, Leslie Lewis and Ashley Seltzer.

The Ellen Stewart Theatre at La MaMa is located at 66 East 4th Street, New York. For more information visit lamama.org.
