The production company, Repertorio Español, includes actors with roots in Colombia, Argentina, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic.
Chronicle of a Death Foretold will provide a unique opportunity to enjoy a live theatrical performance in Columbus staged completely in Spanish, with an audio English translation available with special headphones, which can be requested at the time of ticket purchase. Repertorio Español was founded in 1968 and has made it its mission to bring theatre to broad audiences. The event is organized by the Hispanic/Latino community at The Ohio State University in an effort to provide diverse Latino experiences for the university community and Central Ohio.

Tickets are $10 for the general public and $2 for students, and are available now at the Wexner Center (614-292-3535) and Ticketmaster (614-431-3600).
