Brava presents
Latin Standards
New York Times 2017 "Critic's Pick!"

Written/Performed by Marga Gomez
Directed by David Schweizer

January 11 - 28, 2018
Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun

In her 12th and final solo play Latin Standards Marga Gomez performs the loving, funny and true story of perseverance and creative addiction passed down from immigrant father to lesbian daughter. Mixing nostalgia, urgency, and comic edge, Gomez portrays herself as a driven adult child of a Cuban entertainer. Defying reason she attempts to produce a hipster comedy night at a struggling Latino drag queen club, Esta Noche, 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 that reveled in jealousy and obsession.

Latin Standards premiered at the Public Theater's "Under The Radar Festival" in 2017 and was also presented at The Los Angeles Theater Company's "Encuentro De Las Americas," Segerstrom Center For The Arts in Costa Mesa, Chicago's Urban Theater Company and most recently at American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA. Latin Standards was developed at Brava in 2016 and will be making it's official San Francisco premiere in January 2018.
