Luis Santeiro

Born: 1948
Birthplace: Havana, Cuba

Luis Santeiro has won eight Emmy Awards for his writing for Sesame Street and one for his contribution to the groundbreaking bilingual 1970s sitcom Que Pasa, USA? But Santeiro is primarily a playwright, the creator of widely performed works including Our Lady of the Tortilla (1987) and Praying with the Enemy (1999), which won the National Hispanic Playwright Award. Santeiro's plays use more than a touch of satire to examine such subjects as Catholicism, Hollywood, and Hispanic stereotypes.
