NHMC Continues to Amplify Latinx Creatives 

from the Stage to the Podcast Realm

Writer, Actor, and NHMC Visionary Alliance Member, Gloria Calderón Kellet brings One of the Good Ones, a new comedy commissioned to the Pasadena Playhouse

In this ultimate family showdown, directed by Kimberly Senior, the “perfect” Latina daughter brings her boyfriend home to meet the parents, but when her family’s biases and preconceptions are put on full display, tensions run high and hilarity ensues. Everyone must navigate the ins and outs of family dynamics and the boundaries of acceptance — all while tackling the age-old question: what does it truly mean to be an American?
