ABOUT...

A Summer in 1993 in Spanish Harlem finally reveals the secret past of Cuban-American cardiac nurse Negra Centron. A childhood secret torments the life and stifles the growth of a beautiful woman. The ancient religion of the Yoruba people of Nigeria, known as Regla de Ocha and Santeria in the Diaspora, is the engine behind this supernatural mystery thriller. This African-evolved religion, with its magic, is the backdrop for this tale of love, hate, deceit, betrayal, obsession, forgiveness, acceptance, and hope. Magic, ritual, and destiny are the threads unraveling this gripping, edgy, mystery/thriller.

Pressured by a suspicious mother, a strange bed-fellow, and an amorous co-worker, Negra battles to keep a childhood secret from unraveling while a restless spirit and the African gods seek justice...

WOW!!! THINGS ARE GOING RATHER WELL...

Today was the day I finally saw that I do indeed have a show!  Deadline was today to be "off book" and the cast called my bluff!  The leads are indeed off book and ready to kick up some dust.  I was beyond happy to see the results of the hard work. With still 4 weeks left before preview, I am quite impressed.

Irma Cadiz returns as Lourdes
The lovely Irma Cadiz, the only original cast member from the first production, recreates her role as Lourdes, one of Tony's "whipped" women.  She just can't shake him... 

It's safe to say, keep the actors whose work you know and respect close by.
