After coast to coast critical acclaim “Latin Standards” comes to Berkeley. Gomez’s 12th and final work in the solo performance genre mixes social commentary and comic edge in the loving, funny and true story of perseverance and creative addiction passed down from immigrant father to lesbian daughter.
Writer/ performer Marga Gomez is a GLAAD award and LA Ovation Award-winning writer/performer of 12 solo plays which have been presented nationally at The Public Theater, La Mama ETC, Dixon Place, The Whitney Museum and internationally at London’s ICA, The Edinburgh Fringe, and Montreal’s Juste Pour Rire Festival. She is thrilled to return to The Marsh where she began her solo performance career. Gomez is also a stand-up comedian. Her television appearances include LOGO’s “One Night Stand,” Comedy Central’s “Out There,” and HBO’s “Comic Relief.” She was named “2017 Best Of The Bay Comedian” by the SF Bay Guardian/ 48 hills. Her screen roles include “Sphere” (Warner Brothers) Tracy Takes On… (HBO) and the Netflix series “Sense8.” Gomez teaches and coaches solo performers in classes and online. In 2016 NBC named her one of eleven “Out Latinos you should know.” Her website is margagomez.com
