Oscar A. L. Cabrera
Oscar A. L. Cabrera is a New York-based actor/playwright with INTAR Theater as an ensemble Unit52 member. While attending Texas State University, some of his accomplishments included studying abroad with the Royal Shakespeare Company and placing as a nation finalist in ACTF at the Kennedy Center. As an actor, he signed with The Roster Agency and made his Off-Broadway debut with Theater Masters at Theater Row. Over the past five years he has played with The Lark, NY Theater Workshop, Rattlestick, Gym on Judson, Clubbed Thumb, Rising Circle, Ugly Rhino, Lonestar, and others. His play, Through Andrew’s Eyes, just had its NYC debut as part of INTAR's New Works Lab. It was developed in his Directing 2 class in college, and then stretched out in 2013 with Hudson Warehouse's WAGG program. It was really put on its feet last year when he was a featured playwright for the Black and Latino Playwright Conference at Texas State. With that momentum, he has pushed to write more. He participated in the 1MPF this past year by submitting two pieces, Tengo and Privilege. He is currently working on a piece for Rising Circle's Love In Living Color this February. He wouldn't have been able to do it without the love and encouragement of such an amazing and inspiring community from the Latina/o Theater Commons with Encuentro and Carnival to the beautiful voices in and around INTAR.
