Dead or Alive

Dramatist, poet, and composer Federico García Lorca -- a classically educated Spaniard who was best known for writing about Gypsies and country people, in revered works like Blood Wedding and The House of Bernarda Alba -- was quite the bundle of passionate contradictions. The exact circumstances of his death during the Spanish Civil War in 1936 are still clouded in history's mysteries. (No one's even found his remains yet.) Sounds like a prime candidate for hovering around in ghostly pursuit of unfinished business.

Maybe that's why his influence on other writers, artists, dancers, and musicians continues to this day. Nilo Cruz, the first Latino winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, explores the innovative activist's passage from this world to the next in his 2003 play Lorca in a Green Dress, which ¡Teatro Bravo! presents in its Arizona première through Sunday, March 3.
