Federico Garcia Lorca was killed in Granada in 1936.
Yet his plays are still very much alive.
One Yerma is playing until March 26 in Leeds, England. See the review here http://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/lifestyle/arts-entertainment/theatre-reviews/review_yerma_1_3165637
Another great review in The Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/stage/2011/mar/14/yerma-review quotes Lorca as saying theater is “poetry that becomes human enough to talk”.
While Bodas de Sangre (Blood Wedding) opens today, Friday March 11 in NYC performed by the Marvell Repertory Theatre at the Abingdon Theatre Arts Complex (312 West 36th Street 1st Floor). http://offbroadway.broadwayworld.com/article/Marvell_Reps_BLOOD_WEDDING_Opens_Tonight_20110311
