    Microteatro Lima

    The theater is anything but dry or about high society, at least as far as this tiny space is concerned. A rotating roster of directors and actors changes weekly, offering up plays of just 15 minutes, performed in a 15-sq-meter room in front of 15 audience members. A lively bar makes this a great and unique outing. Plays are in Spanish.
