'Til Sunday,' a Cuban-Immigrant Family Story by Otero, Begins 2/21
'Til Sunday, a new
play written by and starring Nairoby Otero and directed by Michelle Tattenbaum,
will open at the Dorothy Strelsin Theatre and the Abingdon Theatre Arts Complex
(312 West 36th Street,
between 8th and 9th Avenues) on Friday, February 22. There will be a preview
performance on February 21.
"Loeber Productions will present 'Til Sunday, a one-woman play that tells the story of a young
mother coming to the US from
with her daughter in search of a better life. It gives a look at a family that
defines what it means to be Cuban: what it means to be an immigrant and,
ultimately, what it means to be American," explain press notes.
Nairoby Otero, a first generation American, came from a
strong Cuban family. Both parents were immigrants from Cuba, her
father as late as the 1980 boatlift. Nairoby grew up in New Orleans with Spanish as her first
language. As an actress, she has received rave reviews in the New York plays Identity and Words of Choice.
'Til Sunday is dedicated to her
family's plight as immigrants in America.† She is a member of the Dramatists Guild.
Set design is by Jerad Schomer; lighting by Rachel Gilmore, costumes by Jessica Pabst and sound by Kai Gross. Projections designed by Wesley Apfel.
