Women (and Legends) Who Really Rock! with Carmen Milagro

Recent inductee into the International Museum of Women in San Francisco, Carmen Milagro takes you on a creative & musical journey every week, and celebrates “Women and Legends Who Really Rock! You can “rock” as an artist you can rock as a “vocalist, a writer, a lyricist, the leader of the band”.…BUT you can also rock as a human being, as a “leader, caretaker or role model for children”, and “rock” as a vehicle for social change or you can rock as a “parent, teacher or shaman”… that’s my personal definition of someone who REALLY rocks. I created these shows Women and Legends Who REALLY Rock! as a means to feature, nurture, encourage, support and give voice to those who are changing their world! These are people of all ages, ethnicities and lifestyles who are involved in any way shape or form in music, business, film and video, any of the arts, education & parenting, media, design and even politics. Basically, on the radio show we’ll just “talk” on the phone, something we do every day of our lives, we’ll share stories and ideas, play some music, tell you about special events, answer your questions and will primarily, feature interviews with musical colleagues, friends and celebrities in the entertainment business too!

SF Magic Theatre’s Oedipus el Rey Opens to Rave Reviews, Now – February 28th

Posted by admin | Posted in All, Theater | Posted on 10-02-2010

Don’t Miss This Electrifying Myth for the Modern Age
Playing Now – February 28th

Alfaro may be the first, Sophocles included, to place the love of Oedipus and Jocasta squarely at the play’s tragic center. More than that, he makes it resonate with a passion fully enhanced not only by the spare poetry of his text but also by Greco’s intense staging and the naked vulnerability of two fully committed actors… [Read the full article here]
— Rob Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

Let me start by just saying you should go see this play immediately. It runs until February 28 and I am serious. I’ve seen plays on every level, from grade school tantrum fiascos to Kneehigh Theater Company, but this may have been my best experience. [Read the full article here]
–Evan Karp, San Francisco Examiner

I found myself completely immersed in Alfaro’s transposition of the great Sophoclean tragedy Oedipus Rex into a contemporary Latino barrio landscape…the translation succeeds with the same amount of drive and vigor as Sondheim-Laurents-Bernstein’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet to 1950s barrio New York.

What the Audience is Saying:
Romi Dias (Jocasta) and Joshua Torrez (Oedipus)
Romi Dias (Jocasta) and Joshua Torrez (Oedipus)

I loved it! Very powerful, violent and passionate. Moving, intense, and sad.

The emphasis on memory and dwelling on the past was punctuated powerfully. I believe this theme combines Sophocles and Alfaro into timelessness.

I’ve never seen a play like this before, I loved it!

I loved all of the actors, especially the leads! They were amazing.

The acting was exceptional!

Don’t miss Oedipus el Rey!

If you like Oedipus you’ll love No Holds Barrio!
Luis Alfaro, playwright of Oedipus el Rey, performs his outrageous one-man show to benefit Magic Theatre
No Holds Barrio

A disturbingly hilarious one-man show starring Luis Alfaro, a box of Twinkies, and a handle of tequila

Where: Magic Theatre
When: One Night Only!
February 19, 2010 at 10pm (after Oedipus el Rey)

General Admission
$75 VIP – Includes Backstage Margarita Tour at 9:45pm (VIP tickets available via phone only, 415-441-8822)

In this one-man show featuring poetry, performance, and tequila slamming, Luis Alfaro takes the coming-of-age memoir on stage as he digs deep into his two-tongued history and tries to figure out what makes a Latino best. Filled with humor and heartfelt remembrance, this raucous evening of poetic tales, true confessions and performance rituals asks the fundamental question: can one be a Mexican and still love Twinkies? With one foot on each side of the border, Alfaro attempts to fuse his American sensibilities with his Mexican mustache, and keep his balance on the bicultural high wire act.

“All You Need is Love 2” Feb 8- Sharon Gless, La Toya London and more
