New York City
Marga Gomez spills the beans in her 9th solo show–a comedy about lies, vanity and the good old days. This ‘coming of middle age’ story begins during an idyllic childhood visit to a dairy cow’s boudoir in the Bronx. Afterwards, Gomez endures a youth marked by adult hostility and is forced to live by the maxim "children should be seen and not heard." She perseveres through these soul crushing early years with the false hope that when she’s older she can order children about. But in 2011, children call the shots, adults shoot botox and Gomez has to put up with young salesclerks calling her Ma’am, driving her toward murder at a Forever 21 department store.
Lauded for her honesty as an out gay comedian before it was safe to be one, Gomez has actually been a master of deception in other ways. Now the cagey monologist unburdens herself and brings her riskiest revelation to the stage because…she is Not Getting Any Younger.
