Every day is opening night.

Florencia Lozano

Florencia Lozano may be best known as an actor (most notably for her portrayal of the tough as nails attorney Téa Delgado on the daytime television drama “One Life To Live”), but it’s her writing that has landed her on the couch this week. Her second full-length play, underneathmybed, is currently packing them in at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater. When we found out this bilingual mindbender is semi-autobiographical, we knew we had to learn more about this fascinating lady.
