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

This was my first exposure to Frank Blocker (and the Stage Left Theater) and boy, what a thrill! I loved watching him navigate through 17 characters, many of whom I was rooting for. His narration skillfully invited the audience into the mystery of the Mississippi night, with uproarious results. He is taking this play to Hollywood; don't miss your chance to see it when it gets back to NYC.
