Comedy for a good cause
Come one, come all: A night of “sit down comedy” featuring renowned journalist Glenda Umaña and blogger Esther Lev, held at the Eugene O’Neill Theater at the Costa Rican-North American Cultural Center in Barrio Dent, San Pedro, just east of San José.

Ticket sales will benefit Soy Niña, a nonprofit organization working to empower girls in low-income communities. Read our story about Soy Niña here.
