Stairwell Teatro 2023 Ep. 02 It's MAY-suh

Updated: Sep 22, 2023

Here it is, Episode 2 of my Stairwell Teatro. This episode is about a story that caught my eye several years ago. When a newly hired Latina news anchor at a Phoenix television station pronounced Spanish words correctly, some people did not like it and were quite vocal in their criticisms. This caused such a stir that the New York Times covered the controversy. It's here should you care to read it.

If you have a name story you'd like to share, send it to me in an email at I love hearing about your experiences with names. And, if you enjoy my Stairwell Teatro 2023, please share it with friends.

I've got two shows coming. One later this month, on Thursday, September 28th, at 7:30 pm, I'll be at St. Mary's University in San Antonio, my alma mater, at the beautiful Guadalupe Chapel at Treadaway Hall. It's open to anyone and is a free community service -- no charge, GRATIS, so come check it out. St. Mary's is located at:

One Camino Santa Maria

San Antonio, Texas

Treadaway Hall is Building 18 at the top of this map, by Parking Lot C.

And on December 10th at 2 pm, I'll perform at Arizona State University's Kerr Cultural Center. Tickets are now on sale at this link. The yellow "Buy tickets" below isn't an actual link; the photo is a screenshot from the theater's website.

I look forward to seeing my friends in Texas and Arizona soon. Thanks for your warm and supportive comments on Episode 01, the Namaste cuentito, sent via email and social media.
