PERFORMANCE DATES AND TIMES: Thurs., Jan. 10, 2019, 7pm; Fri., Jan. 11, 7pm; Sat., Jan. 12, 7pm; Sun., Jan. 13, 3pm. The San Miguel Playhouse is located at Avenida Independencia 82, and offers free secured parking and taxi concierge service.
Three women storytellers take the stage of the San Miguel Playhouse on January 10 through 12 (Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7pm), and once more on Sunday, January 13, at 3pm. Their show is called Divas in Danger, and their stories, based on personal histories, are “mesmerizing” (Washington Post) and “harrowing and hilarious” (Uptown Gazette).
The spirited and comedic actress/author Debra Ehrhardt knows “Jamaica Farewell” is more than a song. With the unwitting help of a CIA agent, she risked her life escaping her home in Jamaica to fulfill her dream of becoming an American during a violent revolution.
Brenda Adelman’s true tale is equally compelling. Her father shot and killed her mother when she was a child, and then almost immediately married her mother’s sister. The San Diego Examiner writes: “Brenda, her family, and the audience become a life’s lesson in forgiveness, love, and acceptance.”
On a darkly comic note, author/storyteller Mariana Williams gives her bizarre account of life as one of the “other ninety-nine percent” Lamenting that “it sucks to be vain and poor,” she describes undergoing budget plastic surgery—with a doctor practicing out of his suburban home in Park City, Utah.
