CHOCOLATE CASI AMARGO AT 2019 TAMPA INTERNATIONAL FRINGE FESTIVAL. Delicious sexy hot chocolate almost bitter will be served MAY 2019 in YBOR CITY.

Elena Goldfeder and Ruben Gomez from Rochester NY will perform in the 2019 TAMPA INTERNATIONAL Fringe Festival (MAY 3-11). Candide Carrasco’s new play, CHOCOLATE CASI AMARGO (CHOCOLATE ALMOST BITTER), is a bittersweet, hysterical romp through homophobia and conservatism in the Latino community. After an evening out with “good” friends, an older Cuban couple confronts their past, their present, the boredom of everyday life, the decline of aging and – most of all – their only child’s gay lifestyle. In both English and Spanish, this play is suitable for mature audiences.

PACO: So from now on all the gay kids in the universe are your kids?

ISABEL: Sí, that is the way it is, and it is going to be, they are all my kids as long that there are people who laugh at them, and throw stone, and kill them, there are too many mothers of gay kids who checked out ,we are needed, las que se quedan y luchan.

“Where were you the night the Gaybird Steamer ran off her tracks?” Resplendent storyteller Dandy Darkly returns with another audacious hour of hypnotic Southern Gothic grotesquery: creepy robots, African spider gods, beauty shop gossip and inbred rednecks freaks — oh, and trains! Dandy Darkly’s latest follows the lives of the survivors that tragic Halloween night; from the little boy chased by the ghosts that still haunt her as an adult — to the cruel Colonel buried in his bunker, tinkering with his sinister toys. Named a top performance of the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe (The Stage) and winner of “Best Show” at the 2018 San Francisco Fringe. Critically acclaimed. Award winning. The less you know, the better. Simply “Go. See. Dandy!”
