Words from a Cuban Father: A One Woman Show by Alina Ceñal
November 6, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5 – $20
Words from a Cuban Father is a one-woman show created and performed by SOU Theatre guest artist Alina Ceñal.
Steven Leigh Morris of LA Weekly, examines the show… “Alina Cenal’s Words From a Cuban Father uses dance strategically in her autobiographical meditation on the death of her dad — who was a law school roommate of Fidel Castro in Havana. Her dad eventually fled to Miami in 1961, and the family soon followed. The show, directed by James Dolon, contains a vivacious string of anecdotes and impersonations of family and friends, a sexy dance through life. The whimsical clash between Cuban hip-swaying and the aesthetic formalities in a Florida ballet class is lovely. The family’s political softening and the harrowing scenes of caring for a dying patriarch are quite moving, leading to the inevitable “My career’s going OK in L.A., and here’s my show” frame.”
