Stage Left Studio presents Be Careful! The Sharks Will Eat You!, bi-coastal stage actor Jay Alvarez's gripping solo show. This Best of Fringe winner at the Hollywood Fringe Festival and Best Solo Performance winner at the 2011 New York International Fringe Festival tells the story of the Alvarez family's escape from 1960s Cuba. Written and performed by Alvarez under the direction of Theresa Gambacorta, the comic yet touching story portrays the sultry beats of the Tropicana of the 1950s, the danger during Fulgencio Batista's fall and Fidel Castro's rise to power, the plight of children separated from their parents during the revolution, and the longing for a better life that propelled many Cubans to throw themselves, under the cover of moonless nights, into unknown and dangerous waters. This acclaimed show is equal parts family memoir and historical account of life in pre-revolutionary Cuba. Learn More

3 very talented women play writers/actresses/comediennes present a one act version of full plays that are in development.
Performances: excellent. We will Definately follow up and buy tickets when these acts become full-fledged plays; it will be interesting to see if casts are expanded or if they remain solo acts.
