The November speaker in Georgetown Media Group’s Cultural Leadership Breakfast Series will be Rebecca Read Medrano, executive director and cofounder with her husband Hugo of GALA Hispanic Theatre, a national center for Latino performing arts based since 2005 in the landmark Tivoli Theatre in Columbia Heights. The event will take place Thursday, Nov. 10, from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at the George Town Club, 1530 Wisconsin Ave. NW.
Presenting classical and contemporary plays in Spanish and English — including Federico García Lorca’s “Yerma,” which won six Helen Hayes Awards this year — GALA’s name stands for Grupo de Artístas LatinoAmericanos.
Admission to the breakfast, sponsored by Bonhams, is $25 ($20 for George Town Club members). Attendees are invited to bring jewelry for complimentary appraisal by a Bonhams specialist. To RSVP, email email@example.com by Nov. 7
