How was your experience?
Wow! What a treasure this play, Mariela in the Desert, was! The theater company Teatro del Sol was impressive; the actors performed with such depth of emotion. The play was beautifully written. I loved the way the characters (artists) lives were intertwined with Frida and Diego. It was amazing how the actors pulled off the lapses in time so seamlessly, between present day and past. Only negative was our own fault. We arrived a little late so we had to sit way over on the side but even from there we could enjoy it; although the actors had their backs to us most of the time. The second half we managed to find seats right in front of the stage and that proved to be a much more intimate experience. Spanish is my second language and I am a little rusty so looking back and forth from the actors to the supertitles was a little distracting for me. I would love to read the play and then go see it again. It was that good!
