Four years ago, theater artist Ari Laura Kreith founded a theater company to present plays reflecting the multicultural, multilingual lives in her New York City neighborhood of Jackson Heights. It’s called Theatre 167, after the number of languages that are spoken in a few square blocks in the Queens neighborhood. VOA’s Carolyn Weaver reports on its current play.
