May 7, 2022 4:00 p.m. Latin Standards by Marga Gomez
Latin Standards was named New York Times “Critic’s Pick” for its “winning heart and humor.” Written and performed by GLAAD award winner Marga Gomez and directed by David Schweizer, “Latin Standards” recalls Marga’s childhood in Washington Heights with her father, Willy Chevalier, comedian, producer, songwriter, and prominent figure in the golden era of New York’s Latino variety shows also known as La Farandula. As a tribute to his memory, adult Marga defied reason and launched a hipster comedy night at “Esta Noche,” a doomed San Francisco Latino drag club, during the onset of the city’s gentrification crisis. It’s an energetic, funny and poignant story of perseverance and creative addiction passed down from immigrant father to lesbian daughter. After playing full houses in Tucson in 2018 the Arizona Star said: “Gomez infuses her stories with such delicious details and character that you are transported. That makes for a fine 80 minutes.”
