"Vibrant....winning heart and humor. Critic's pick!" — The New York Times
In her 12th solo play GLAAD Award winner, Marga Gomez performs the loving, funny and true story of perseverance and creative addiction passed down from immigrant father to lesbian daughter. Mixing nostalgia, social commentary and comic edge, Gomez portrays herself as a driven adult child of a blustery Cuban showman. As an impractical tribute to his memory, she defies reason and launches a hipster comedy night at "Esta Noche," a doomed Mission district drag club, during the onset of San Francisco's gentrification crisis.
Between vivid portrayals of characters from 1960's Manhattan to present day San Francisco, Gomez ponders the ballads (or Latin Standards) penned by her late father Willy Chevalier: a comedian/producer/entrepreneur and composer of dance tunes steeped in jealousy and obsession. The performance runs 80 minutes with no intermission. For more visit borderlandstheater.org and margagomez.com
