“I’ll Say She Is” – The Lost Marx Brothers Musical at The Connelly Theater

First of all…there is this wonderful NY Times review!

“Mr. Diamond himself plays Groucho, and he might as well be Groucho. Matt Roper’s Chico and Seth Shelden’s Harpo are also meticulous, and Matt Walters completes the quartet with the less well-known Zeppo, the male romantic lead in the story but certainly not the center of attention.”

Next..you better get tickets NOW before it is TOOO late!

I was delighted at be able to photograph the show early in the run. I did the NY Fringe Festival two years ago and again this year with the ‘full production’.

Here are some moments for this funny, charming, hilarious, musical, Marx Brothers show!

2016.06.01.MarxBros_026The chorus line is wonderful!

2016.06.01.MarxBros_074Matt Roper (Chico), Seth Shelden (Harpo) and Noah Diamond (Groucho) are great!

So many other great shots of the show BUT I suggest you see it for yourself!

Fellini’s ‘La Strada’ performed by La Strada Company at IATI Theatre, NYC

Produced by IATI Theater and La Strada Company

Written by Federico Fellini, Tullio Pinelli and Ennio Flaiano

Spanish Adaptation by Gerard Vazquez

Directed by Rene Buch and Jorge Merced.

Clown Consulting by Audrey Crabtree

Este es un proyecto que sólo podía ser posible soñando y proyectando que se cumpliría. Nada ha logrado desilusionarme en el camino y finalmente me he ido rodeando de gente, amigos,.. que han hecho posible que La Strada en Nueva York sea vista por una audiencia que ha disfrutado mucho de la obra y así nos lo ha hecho ver.

Cada uno debe encontrar su propio camino, su “strada”, sin dejar que esté tan condicionado por frustraciones del pasado. Hay que encararlas a tiempo y una vez hecho eso, buscar el camino que nos es propio a cada uno. Hay uno trazado para cada individuo basado en sus deseos y necesidades que le son propias por encima de las de nuestros progenitores o el resto de la sociedad que nos rodea, juzga y observa. Por encima de eso está tu “strada”; la tuya, que estás ahora mismo leyendo estas líneas. No confundas tu camino y el de otros. Recuerda que después no hay marcha atrás, y de ti sólo quedarán los que estuvieron a tu lado.

Luis Carlos de La Lombana, Director, La Strada Company.
