About This Show

Orangerie combines beat poetry, characterizations and storytelling with Margaret Echeverría. She’s sexy, she’s intelligent, she will move you to tears, and she will slay you with a few good laughs. Sprouted by flower children in rich Iowa top soil, displaced to a conservative Baptist culture during adolescence, and roughed up in New York City for the last decade, Echeverría has just begun to make her mark in independent film and theatre, winning the “Best Actress in a Short” category at the Buenos Aires Film Festival and taking Sundance by storm as the leading actress in Dean Kapsalis’ film Jigsaw Venus.

From finding fulfillment as an artist stuck in a demeaning corporate setting to looking for Mr. Right through an adult phone service, in Orangerie, Echeverría’s stories, poems, and characterizations are at once a reflection of everyday life and a journey into the surreal.
