Repetorio Espanol presents Gabriel García Márquez’s epic tale in which a secret love must stand the test of time; performed in Spanish with English subtitles. More…
An extraordinary love story between a poetically-inclined man named Florentino Ariza and a sensual, practical yet somewhat elusive woman named Fermina Daza. Spanning fifty years of time, the story plays out in a series of short scenic episodes filled with poetry, song, movement and heightened moments of theatricality. Performed in Spanish with English subtitles.
for a previous production "This is pure theatre for actors, theatre lovers and people who want to see this story told in a different way. Perhaps the unique character of the play has something to do with Repertorio Español itself, one of the few remaining repertory theatre companies in the United States...If you love theatre, in any language, go see 'El Amor en los tiempos del cólera'." Full Review
for a previous production "Not all of the performers are physically at ease, and the dance routines that accompany several sung scenes, feel awkwardly inserted. Still, this cast is adroit, and good company for two hours. But if 'Love in the Time of Cholera' doesn’t lag, it also doesn’t especially lodge in the mind. The various loves (thwarted, married, sexual, etc.) are too narrowly depicted, and too tangentially connected to sociopolitical themes, to attain the sweeping expansiveness of Mr. Márquez’s writing."
