BWW Review: NO ME DIGAS QUE YA SE at Picadero Theater
Knowing absolutely everything that is going to happen is it a gift or an illnes? And what if you knew that your partner is going to leave you and you knew every Word he/she is gonna say, what would you do? ¨Dont tell me, I already know¨(No me digas que ya sé).
Mariel Percossi is the main actress of this great show where she has to live with this ¨gift¨of knowing what is going to happen next. Her character, Lola, has to live with what she thinks is a terrible illness while for her best friend, Laureano and her boyfriend´s brother, Pedro, it is such a cool blessing.
Around Lola and her life-conflict happens this beautiful Musical. On one side we have her friends trying to find the solution to her problem while really enjoying it. Another important situation that arises is Lola´s relationship with her mother and how she tries to take some distance from her. Also there are scenes that involve the relationship Lola has with her young neighbor, Berta, a little girl that roller skates and sells raffles to buy dresses to compete proffesionally.
This musical shows the way in which each of us behave, supposing or imagining what its going to happen next, or how the other person will react to what and how we communicate. The main message of the show would be¨Try to live today and be present¨. The minimalist look of the scenography help this message be super clear to the audience without any visual distractions.
Lola´s mom, makes a great mother through excelent performing skills. She is one of those mothers who wants to know absolutely everything that's going on with her kids: what are they doing, when, where, with who and why, she wants to know it all! This mother has a very strong bond with her daughter because she is her only family left.
It is important to also mention the great performance of Sol Macchia, the young neighbor. Her character is a little bit naïve but at the same time she is a super strong with conviction and great will. It is a beautiful character, adorable and funny as well.
¨No me Digas que ya sé¨ is a great story for the entire family to go see. It will make you laugh and also has intense moments that will make you think about the meaning of life.
