Lovebirds by Marga Gomez In her tenth solo play, GLAAD award winning comic performer Marga Gomez portrays a crew of incurable romantics as they chase their passions – into the night, through decades, and to absurd lengths in Greenwich Village. Orestes, a macho maitre d' is infatuated with a tin-eared singer married to an academic who never sleeps and is never awake. On the other side of town Orestes's daughter cuts off her hair, joins a coven, and starts dating the captain of a women's football team. Weaving through the action is Polaroid Phillie, an ageless LSD fueled nightclub photographer and fixture at gay bars, Spanish restaurants, street corners and wherever sparks fly.
“Hilariously etched characters in an intricate web of love, longing and life. It’s fast. It’s fun. It’s thought – provoking.” San Francisco Chronicle
