The title “I Too, We Two!” acknowledges the collaborative spirit between the Ensemble Theatre and the MFAH and also references the Ensemble Theatre’s virtual production I, Too, Am America.

My Journey with Flamenco

The exhibition Glory of Spain: Treasures from the Hispanic Society Museum & Library provides the inspiration.
