About this show

After coast-to-coast critical acclaim, Marga Gomez comes to the Marsh Berkeley with Latin Standards, her 12th and final work in the solo performance genre. Gomez explores the loving, funny, and true story of perseverance and creative addiction passed down from immigrant father to lesbian daughter as she portrays herself as a driven adult child of a blustery Cuban showman. Between vivid portrayals of characters from 1960s Manhattan to present-day San Francisco, Gomez ponders the ballads penned by her late father Willy Chevalier: a comedian, producer, entrepreneur, and composer of dance tunes steeped in jealously and obsession.
