What I liked

I like the friendship that develops between the characters. Although there is tension and assault at first, Yolanda is able to warm up to Ramiro with a cup of tea, pastries and her own Holocaust experience. Both actors are very likable and relatable, especially Ramiro.

What I didn't like

A few tech issues that are bound to happen but nothing that took away from the play.

My overall impression

An elderly woman gets an uninvited and unwelcomed visit at her door. Ramiro storms inside her house, ties her up and begins searching for her safe, her money and her jewelry. Does it sound funny yet? Sometimes, real stories sound stranger than fiction and, in this dramedy written by Marcos Cohen, sometimes funny.

Lincoln 2020

Jaded campaign manager Tess Baker (Jessica Jones meets Josh Lyman) is about ready to throw in the towel when somebody wakes up a candidate she can work with - Abraham Lincoln.

A BIT MUCH: A Solo Comedy

A LOL funny, insightful journey that illustrates how women can comfortably step into their own brand of strength and femininity without compromise. Spoiler alert: it's harder than it looks, but not impossible. June 8, 16, 27 at the Lounge Theatre.
