See it if You like discrimination to other races and expensive confusing plays

Don't see it if You think that expensive things aren't worth the repetitive motions vs the price of an entertaining movie at the movie theater

American Theatre Magazine
November 18th, 2014
For a previous production

"Writer/performer Ruben C. Gonzalez’s solo performance La Esquinita, USA came from one of Latino theatre’s legacy companies, El Teatro Campesino of San Juan Bautista, Calif. Luis Valdez’s troupe was originally a wing of the United Farm Workers... Gonzalez’s performance was first-rank in a poetical two-act play still in need of editing."

For a previous production

"Gonzalez' live stage art is transcendent, exhilarating in its simplicity, yet full of emotional depth...Cara Mía Theatre's mission is to 'broaden appreciation and understanding of Chicano and Latino culture through theater, literature and educational programs.' 'La Esquinita, USA' fulfills every aspect of that mission and offers an evening of charmed, evocative performance."

For a previous production

"A dazzler...Gonzalez takes great pains to portray each character with detailed physical and emotional touches...with sharp directing touches by Kinan Valdez…There still needs to be some development in the storytelling...The marriage of the two halves doesn’t always cohere…Make no mistake; Gonzalez is one of the most critical voices going in the Bay Area. He is a first responder to the emergency of our souls, and does not provide us with an easy out."
