Latin Standards is Marga Gomez's funny and moving new solo piece about fathers, entertainment, wealth, poverty and café cubano. It is directed by David Schweizer, Marga's creative partner on several shows including lovebirds and POUND. Marga revisits the triumphs and demons of her father Willy Chevalier - a comedian, producer, songwriter, Café El Pico spokesperson, and a prominent figure in the golden era of New York's Latino culture. His influence spurred Marga on her journey as a performing artist and micro-manager. It's a loving, humorous, and poignant story of perseverance and creative addiction passed down from immigrant father to lesbian daughter. Latin Standards is Marga's twelfth solo show. It will be presented Off Broadway at The Public Theater in January 2017.
