After coast to coast critical acclaim “Latin Standards” comes to Berkeley. Gomez’s 12th and final work in the solo performance genre mixes social commentary and comic edge in the loving, funny and true story of perseverance and creative addiction passed down from immigrant father to lesbian daughter.
As an impractical tribute to the memory of her father, a blustery Cuban showman, Marga defies reason and launches a hipster comedy night at “Esta Noche,” a doomed Mission district Latino drag club, during the onset of San Francisco’s gentrification crisis. Always optimistic Marga declares “Esta Noche might smell like bleach and urinal cake now. But potpurri can fix that. I’ll buy all the potpourri in town. Because my father taught me you have to spend money to make money!”
