Sincere thanks for your support for Astraea’s benefit night with Marga Gomez’ Los Big Names on Monday April, 24th! The entire evening proved to be as fun and entertaining as we know Marga to be! We had a great time during the reception meeting and chatting with you and Marga (up close and personal) on such a warm and lovely night in the Theater district! What a great, casual way to boost our spirits on a Monday!

Again, thank you for joining us, and please let someone know about the show and Astraea’s tickets.

As America’s most versatile Lesbian playwright and performer, Marga Gomez, stars in Los Big Names; an autobiographical tale that showcases her signature blend of humorous storytelling, spirited physicality, and emotional muscle. Los Big Names is set in two eras: the New York Latin show business world of the ’60s and Hollywood of the ’90s. It follows the lives of an unconventional Latino family of three pursuing their dreams of fame and fortune. For 90 minutes, Ms. Gomez portrays her mom, dad, the bodega busybody, Queen Latifah, Kathleen Turner and all of the vivid characters in this wild but true tale interweaving a moving family saga with an all-out skewering of celebrity.
