Smallwood portrays “Pedro”, the head muleteer in the musical. Smallwood describes his character as a self-centered, gruff man who constantly seeks to “hire” Aldonza for her services.
Smallwood believes the biggest challenge to playing this role is staying in character, while his favorite aspect is “having the opportunity to show a different side of myself.”
