Sylvia Loehndorf of Fed by Fire Productions proudly presents:
“American Ese: A One-man Show” starring Dario Gonzalez.
Directed & developed by Noah Blake
Written by Dario Gonzalez (with additional material by Samantha Dunn & Noah Blake)
As a young boy, Dario Gonzalez fled to California with his family in a desperate attempt to escape the Salvadoran Civil War. While Dario’s story is a deeply personal account of addiction, recovery and making peace with a painful family history, his wildly funny performance smartly illuminates the plight many Latino immigrants face as they strive for that most American of ideals: The pursuit of happiness.
Come see the revival of the successful 2005 production glowingly reviewed by Backstage West’s Paul Birchall:
“Gonzalez is a wonderfully engaging narrator of his experience, and his charisma is such that we almost immediately feel like we’ve known him for years. Blake’s crisp, intimate staging is extremely well-timed, bordering on the delicately acrobatic.”
