TOP DRAWER

Her father was a closeted gay concert pianist, her mother a thrice-married opera singer with impossibly high artistic standards. And the story of a daughter’s journey to Cuba to find her father’s grand piano, left behind when the family fled the Revolution in 1960, is told in Adelaide Mestre’s remarkable, hilarious, heartbreaking and song-filled one-woman show “Top Drawer”, coming to Catskill’s Bridge Street Theatre March 8-10 as part of BST’s 2024 SoloFest. Accompanied by Doug Oberhamer at the piano, Mestre revisits her privileged childhood on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in a family that “didn’t talk about things a lot”, her parents’ doomed love affair, her return to Havana to try to reclaim her family’s heritage, and her struggle, as an artist, to break free from the facade of glamor and perfection that her family seemed to prize above all else. It’s an inspiring autobiographical tale of tragedy and triumph, dysfunction and redemption, shared in story and song. “Top Drawer” plays Friday March 8 and Saturday March 9 at 7:30pm and Sunday March 10 at 2:00pm on BST’s “Priscilla” Mainstage, located at 44 West Bridge Street in Catskill.
