What would you expect from a woman named
Maria Conchita Alfonso, Alfonso, Alfonso?
Whatever it is, you won't be disappointed! Playwright/Actress Marina Palmier delivers a Latin love letter full of charm, humor and poignancy in her new one act play.
Directed for laughs and heart by Richard Pierce, the story begins as a seduction from a skilled and practiced seducer- Maria Conchita Alfonso, Alfonso, Alfonso herself --a much married, former talk show host with an aging Latin following.
As a matter of fact, the mother of her current prey--a handome actor/waiter-convincingly played by Ramon Camacho-is a huge fan of Maria's. Confronted with the object of his boyhood desires, our waiter surprises Maria with a few tricks of his own.
Very, very funny. I loved the different jokes on the various kinds of Latino's - Marina Palmier is not only a great comedienne but a terrific writer. The timing was perfect! The only thing wrong was that it was too short! It left me wanting more....
