CRITIC’S PICK "Review: From Last Rites to Marriage Vows in ‘Filomena Marturano’: Resetting the Italian drama on an unnamed Caribbean island, Repertorio Español allows two rich performers to shine in a twisty romance."
"Just about any visit to Repertorio Español reveals how many accomplished actors the company has at its command. This time around, the name to note is Zulema Clares as the title character…'Filomena Marturano' is often fun, but you might find yourself becoming a bit impatient with its cast of indefatigable schemers."
