Platanos Y Collard Greens 

About The Show
Platanos Y Collard Greens is the hilarious romantic tale which asks if love between Blacks and Latinos can survive. Platanos Y Collard Greens is the story of two college students…strangers from different cultures…who fall in love at first sight…until her Mom finds out and as a heart attack!  Forced to confront & overcome prejudices while defending their bond from family and friends. Platanos will remind you of your family, your loves, your life.  It is guaranteed to make you laugh, inspire you and make you think.

From Joe Cuba to Fat Joe, from Felipe Luciano and the Young Lords to Afrika Bambaataa, from Latin Boogalo to Hip Hop, from Barack Obama to Sonia Sotomayor, this play has something for everyone.
