Acclaimed actress/writer/director Odalys Nan'n is back, which once again proves to be great news for the lesbian theatre scene. Can love conquer all? The actresses are a joy to watch, and both have a keen sense of comic timing. Production values live up to the impeccable Macha standards. The show's a class act through and through, and a marvelously entertaining way to kick off the fall season.

by Polly Warfield
This love story takes a refreshlingly light and playful tone, ? la screwball comedies of the '30s and '40s. A bumpy road to romance can be fun. Nan'n's Laura and Terri Lyn Rain's Rachel are gorgeous and well contrasted. Looks and manner of lushly curvaceous brunette Nan'n bespeak her Cuban origin, which she accents with bongo beats on that bright red drum, plus rhumba and conga flourishes. Rain's red-haired, reed-slim Rachel resembles a sophisticated young Cher. Both have dazzling smiles, panache and humor. Customes are becoming often revealing.

"Nanin and Maria Therese Rangel are superb as two
L.A. based Latina actresses who fall in love, only to
discover that the road to marital bliss is strewn
with land mines."
