One Minute With… Henry Godinez

The resident artistic associate at the Goodman Theatre; director of the Goodman’s biennial Latino Theatre Festival; co-founder of Teatro Vista, a company dedicated to promoting Latino culture within Chicago theatre; former panelist for the National Endowment for the Arts and associate professor at Northwestern shares what he thinks are the three most important works of theatre. 1. A Raisin in the Sunday, Lorraine HansberryIt created a space for the African American experience in the canon of American theater and paved the way for writers like August Wilson and Lynn Nottage. 2. Death of a Salesman, Arthur MillerMiller captured the essence of the American tragic hero by shooting to the core of the American psyche and created the theatrical equivalent of a car crash that you can’t stop watching. 3. Marisol, Jose RiveraIt is a fierce indictment of the world told through a beautiful balance of vulgar humor and lyrical prose that conjures hope even out of absolute hopelessness. Every NU student should see… Hamlet, William ShakespeareIt says something about pretty much everything that has to do with being a young human being.
