Loud and boisterous...and OUTSTANDING! An amazing performer with an amazing story. Take note: the promotional photo is of the artist and his family's actual trip portrayed in the show (he's the sleeping child). Bring kleenex.

This show was performed by an extremely talented man. It was a wonderful example of what Cubans went through to escape and gain their freedom. It was so touching, parts of it brought tears to my eyes.

This was a fabulous show! It's funny and very, very poignant. I wish Jay all the best - looks like he is Broadway bound :-). The theatre is very small so get there in plenty of time.

1 person show- beautifully acted- of the story of his immigration to the US from Cuba. He engages the audience to feel what it was like in Cuba in the late 50's, early 60's between the transition of Batista to Castro. Informative and evocative.

It was a one man show which I didn't know until I got there. He was a great storyteller. Great portrayal of the immigrant experience.

The show was well performed and well written. The space was small and therefore very intimate. Everyone was very friendly and informative about the play. Even met the actor afterwards! Will definitely check out other plays thru this venue.
