"She's one of Maui's hardest-working, most-recognizable personalities, a diminutive dynamo with more energy in her baby toe than most of us have in our entire beings. Radio broadcaster, essayist, actress, performance artist, poet, emcee, she's got so much life, talent and humor to offer, she had to split herself in two. If she's there, you want to be there. She's Kathy Collins - and, sometimes, she's Tita.
"Tita's the local girl part of me," Collins said, speaking of her straight-talking alter-ego. "She says what I would say if I didn't have to worry about what I said." "
"The day after the Lincoln Center Festival, Tita headed over to the Bronx, where she and the other "La Casita" performers wowed the crowd at Teatro Pregones.
"The Puerto Rican women in the Bronx loved Tita," Collins said. "She told them some Pele stories and they really appreciated the 'Titatude.' It was a fascinating, empowering experience." "
