May 10, 8:00 pm – Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Symphony Space, New York.
A one-man-show written and performed by Jay Alvarez. Told with humor and pathos through the sensitive lens of a child, the story relates a family’s perilous escape from Cuba. Alvarez’s “galvanizing solo piece” will be followed by performances of newly written compositions for the play by the multi-Grammy winner Paquito D’Rivera, with lyrics by Gaby Gold. Joining Paquito on the stage will be Tony-nominee Olga Merediz, seasoned Broadway actor Tony Chiroldes, and veteran theater actor Felipe Gorostiza, as they present for backers and explore a musical journey to the Great White Way. Directed and developed by Theresa Gambacorta, as seen at Stage Left Studio.
