Marga Gomez Long Island Iced Latina

Colony Theater
1040 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, FL

One of America’s first openly Queer comics, GLAAD and Ovation award winner Marga has been seen on LOGO and Comedy Central. In Long Island Iced Latina, Marga pours a long tall drink of cultural confusion, chronic virginity and mother daughter instability. What begins as a hilariously dark memoir of Gomez as the only brown girl in a white high school morphs into an intoxicating manifesto for Latinos who can’t speak Spanish, suck at Salsa, and suffer from Blonditis.

In Long Island Iced Latina, Marga Gomez pours a long tall drink of cultural confusion, chronic virginity and mother daughter instability. What begins as a hilariously dark memoir of Gomez as the only brown girl in a white high school morphs into an intoxicating manifesto for Latinos who can’t speak Spanish, suck at Salsa, and suffer from Blonditis. “We’re everywhere!” Gomez claims. “And we vote!”

Marga Gomez, who as been described as a “Latina Lily Tomlin” and as a “Lesbian Larry the Cable Guy,” is the winner of the GLAAD Award for Off-Broadway Theater and a Drama Desk Award nominee. She is the writer /performer of five critically acclaimed solo plays and two others that weren’t too bad. Gomez is also one of America’s first openly gay comedians with appearances on LOGO network, Comedy Central and PBS. For her third engagement with Miami Light Project, Gomez will serve up Long Island Iced Latina a new solo comedy that sold out Joe’s Pub as part of Teatro Stagefest in 2007.
