Rowing to a better life
Based on a bold escape from the throes of Fidel Castro's Cuba, Jay Alvarez's one-man hit show pays homage to his parents, who escaped the regime, fell in love, and shuttled between two identities. The bicoastal actor and dramaturge previously appeared on Til Death and The Sopranos as well as several national commercials. A word of warning: this family saga may just pull on your heartstrings…no matter your roots. General admission.
"A flawless performance."
