Marga Gomez: Long Island Iced Latina

Presented by the Chicago Humanities Festival in association with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago

Marga Gomez, whom Robin Williams deemed "a lesbian Lenny Bruce," performs her latest solo theater piece in an exclusive Chicago performance. Long Island Iced Latina begins with a hilariously dark memoir of her time as the only brown girl in a white high school then switches gears to deliver a manifesto for Latinos who can't speak Spanish, suck at Salsa, and suffer from Blonditis. "We're everywhere," Gomez claims, "and we vote!"

Long Island Iced Latina played to full houses at Miami's South Beach Comedy Festival and New York's Teatro Stagefest. One of the country's first openly gay comedians, the award-winning Gomez is the author/performer of eight solo plays presented Off-Broadway and internationally. She has appeared on LOGO, Comedy Central, HBO, PBS, and Showtime.

Tickets $15, MCA Members $10
