Kristoffer Diaz’s Welcome to Arroyo’s has begun previews at The Old Globe in San Diego. The hip hop-infused play is directed by Jaime Castañeda and will have its official opening on September 30. It will also be performed at Lincoln High School Center for the Arts Nov. 6 and 7 as part of the Globe’s Southeastern San Diego Residency Project.

In Welcome to Arroyo’s, a Greek chorus of two hip hop DJs spin the tale of a brother and sister’s search for their respective places in the world after their mother’s death. Alejandro is desperate to make Arroyo’s the hottest lounge in New York to honor the memory of his mother, while Molly’s desire to make her “mark” as a talented graffiti artist is at odds with her new infatuation with a rookie cop. Their struggle to move forward is made even more uncertain as they discover what might be a secret about their mother that could change the very foundation of their lives and, possibly, the history of hip hop music.

The cast of Welcome to Arroyo’s features Wade Allain-Marcus (Trip Goldstein), Tala Ashe (Lelly Santiago), Byron Bronson (Officer Derek), Andres Munar (Alejandro Arroyo), GQ (Nelson Cardenal) and Amirah Vann (Amalia Arroyo).

Tickets can be purchased online at
