Divas in Danger
Three true tales of Escape, Betrayal and Budget Plastic Surgery
On January 10th through the 13th the San Miguel Playhouse plays host to a trio of amazing storytellers. The title of their show, Divas in Danger, is however, somewhat misleading. The danger is real but the three actress/authors that perform Divas could never be described as such. Each of them has a tale to tell and the gritty and candid portrayal of their unlikely personal histories has been described as “mesmerizing”, Washington Post and both“harrowing and hilarious” Grunion 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. The Washington Post says, “Debra Ehrhardt possesses a rare ability to mesmerize.”
Brenda Adelman’s true tale (taken from her one-person show, “My Brooklyn Hamlet) is equally compelling. Her father shot and killed her mother when she was a child and then almost immediately married her mother’s sister. Her life lesson was to forgive the unforgiveable. San Diego Examiner writes, “Brenda, her family and the audience become a life’s lesson in forgiveness, love and acceptance.”
On a lighter, although equally shocking note, author/storyteller Mariana Williams delivers comic relief with her bizarre account of life as one of the “other 99%.” Lamenting, “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.
The Grunion Gazette writes, “This talented trio relates personal tales that skillfully manage to be both harrowing and hilarious, sometimes simultaneously. The full house responded enthusiastically to ‘Divas in Danger’ and it’s well worth checking out…Williams has a winning, personable storytelling style for sure!”
Divas in Danger, will be performed at the San Miguel Playhouse, Avenida Independencia #82, on Jan.10-12 at 7:00 pm and Jan. 13 at 3:00 pm. Tickets are $250MXN (advance) and $300MXN at the door. They can be purchased online at sanmiguelplayhouse.com, at Solutions, Recreo #11 and at the door one hour before show time for the day of the show. The show is reserved seating, and the Playhouse provides a taxi concierge and free secured parking.
