Gilbraltar, 12 Days of Cochina
|
(0)

Thus Marga Gomez's solo show The 12 Days of Cochina — a revised and politically up-to-date version of her popular 2001 play, sharply staged by Theater Rhinoceros artistic director John Fisher — follows a jilted, sex-starved lesbian through a not exactly Dickensian but still Ebenezer Scrooge–<\d>like reawakening. Fans of the charismatic playwright-performer don't need telling, but Gomez's work is consistently funny and smart, and her high-energy performance is as deft as they come.
