Brian Quijada’s one-man show, Where Did We Sit on the Bus?, presented by Ensemble Studio Theatre and The Radio Drama Network Off-Broadway, officially opens September 19. The solo play examines what it means to be Latino through the eyes of a child, turned teenager, turned adult.

With direction by Chay Yew, performances run through October 9 at EST’s Curt Dempster Theatre. Previews began September 10.

Written by and starring Quijada, Where Did We Sit on the Bus? features Latin rhythms, hip-hop and spoken word. In the play, the actor and playwright recalls a third grade lesson on Civil Rights and Rosa Park, during which a Latino boy raises his hand to ask, “Where did we sit on the bus?” The autobiographical solo show began as a compilation of rap songs and poems performed at New York City’s iconic Nuyorican Poets Café, before being developed further and premiering in Chicago earlier this year.

Tickets are from $25, and can be purchased at ensemblestudiotheatre.org or by calling (866) 811-4111. The Curt Dempster Theatre is located at 549 W. 52nd Street, New York.
