Fresh from its New York City premiere at La Mama Theater, the Santa Cruz Fringe Festival and a critically acclaimed six month original run at The Marsh San Francisco LOVEBIRDS comes to Berkeley. In her tenth solo play LOVEBIRDS, acclaimed performer Marga Gomez portrays a crew of incurable romantics as they chase their hearts’ desires – into the night, through decades, and to insane lengths. Orestes, a macho maitre d’ is infatuated with a tin eared singer who is married to an academic who never sleeps and is never awake. On the other side of town Orestes’s daughter cuts off her hair, joins a coven, and starts dating the captain of a women’s football team. They are observed and documented by Polaroid Phillie, an ageless nightclub photographer and fixture at gay bars, Spanish restaurants, and wherever passion happens.

GLAAD award winning solo performer Marga Gomez will return to downtown’s legendary La MaMa Theatre with LOVEBIRDS, June 6th through June 15 2014, six shows only. In LOVEBIRDS Gomez portrays New York’s gay and straight romantically challenged: a hallucinating photographer, an old school butch, a sleepy professor, a wife thief and his daughter following their hearts through decades. The San Francisco Chronicle called LOVEBIRDS “a satiric feast of hilariously etched characters in an intricate web of love, longing and life"

LOVEBIRDS reached it's original goal TONIGHT in less than a week! YOU did that!!! But LOVEBIRD'S INDIEGOGO fundraising campaign goes till Jan 25th 2014 and lots of great PERKS remain to be grabbed. Let's take it HIGHER!!
Honestly I didn't ask for all the budget when I started this campaign but LOVEBIRDS will surely cost over $4000 and that is just me paying others and paying for set and promo. It would be great not to use my credt cards to fund the show.
Thank you all from my heart. This has been a great lesson for me - if you couldn't donate don't trip and if you might donate in the next 16 days know that it will be used to make LOVEBIRDS the best it can be.http://igg.me/at/margagomezlovebirds/x/269167
