In her new solo comedy LONG ISLAND ICED LATINA, Marga Gomez pours a long tall drink of cultural confusion, chronic virginity and mother daughter instability. Mixing theatrical physicality and stand-up comedy candor, she begins by recounting a hilariously dark memoir of the only brown girl in a white high school then switches gears to deliver an intoxicating manifesto for Latinos who can’t speak Spanish, suck at Salsa, and suffer from Blonditis. “We’re everywhere.” Gomez claims “And we vote!”
The show plays for six performances only from January 9 – 17, 2009 at The Marsh Studio Theater, 1062 Valencia Street (near 22nd st) in San Francisco. For tickets call Brown Paper Tickets at 800-838-3006 or visit www.themarsh.org.
An earlier workshop production of LONG ISLAND ICED LATINA sold out at Joe’s Pub in New York in 2008. It has also been presented at the Waldron Arts Center in Bloomington, Indiana and will premiere at the 2009 South Beach Comedy Festival in conjunction with Miami Light Project later in January.
