Martinez, Artistic Director for the New Theatre, will be the first Cuban American to be honored today with the prestigious Margo Jones Award presented by The Ohio State University Libraries and OSU Arts and Humanities. The award honors those who have demonstrated a significant impact, understanding and affirmation of the craft of playwriting, and who have encouraged the living theatre everywhere. Martinez is a spirited Cuban-American “theatre maker.” As an award-winning director, he has been invited to direct for the MFA Playwrights’ Workshop at the Kennedy Center’s American College Theater Festival and Stanford University’s National Center for New Plays and other prestigious organizations.
