Words from a Cuban LA Weekly Review

February 1st, 2015|Comments Off on Words from a Cuban LA Weekly Review

HOLLYWOOD FRINGE FEST 2015: WHAT YOU SHOULD SEE Read the Whole Article! "Alina Cenal's Words From a Cuban Father (at Theatre of NOTE) uses dance strategically in her autobiographical meditation on the death of her dad — who was a law school roommate of Fidel Castro in Havana. Her dad eventually fled to Miami in 1961, and the family soon followed. The show, directed by James Dolon, contains a vivacious string of anecdotes and impersonations of family and friends, a sexy dance through life. The whimsical clash between Cuban hip-swaying and the aesthetic formalities in a Florida ballet class is lovely. The family's political softening and the harrowing scenes of caring for a dying patriarch are quite moving, leading to the inevitable "My career's going OK in L.A., and here's my show" frame." - LA Weekly,  Steven Leigh Morris
