A slice of Dominican life in the Heights.

Why See La Barberia?

LA BARBERIA - Where locals, celebrities, baseball players, musicians, gangsters, and cops can sit around and do their "boys will be boys" thing, regardless of their social or economic status. Dominicana will spice up the Midtown-Broadway area with "LA BARBERIA." A Dominican/Latino Dramatic Comedy, that takes the audience on in emotional journey of hope, identity, and assimilation. Where else can grown Latino men make you cry, cheer, and applaud all in one performance?

When Beny Acevedo, landlord and proprietor of a bustling Washington Heights barbershop, gets a multi-million dollar offer to sell his building, he faces the toughest decision of his life. Set against a score of original contemporary Latin music emanating from the airwaves, La Barberia is a comedic and wistful portrait of a neighborhood in flux and a tribute to the strength of community.
