See it if you enjoy plays in Spanish or even you don't speak Spanish. There are English subtitles. It's very well-acted and a compelling story.
Don't see it if you don't enjoy stories about forbidden romance or don't think you'd enjoy a play performed in a language different from your own.
See it if You can speak Spanish fluently. I think this was a brilliant play/production. Great acting/costumes/sets but I couldn't follow the subtitles
Don't see it if Even if you're OK w/movie subtitles. It was very challenging to switch from digital screen to stage. Gonna read the book.
“Romance meets boisterous farce in Caridad Svich’s lively adaptation of Mario Vargas Llosa’s autobiographical novel. And in that intersection, it’s the romance that triumphs. The show has parallel narratives set in the 1950s, skillfully evoked in Susan Zeeman Rogers’s set design; period mambo from Pérez Prado and others; and especially Leni Mendez’s costumes...The most compelling story belongs to Mario and Julia...Ms. Davi—whose Julia is sensual yet sensible—generates the star power."
"'Tía Julia y El Escribidor' comes across as a well built and well performed play that reminds us about our passions, our faults as humans and the possibilities life opens up to us when we give it a chance. Definitely a show for those looking for a breath of fresh theatrical and poetic air."
