TOP DRAWER: Stories of Dysfunction and Redemption from Park Avenue to
Havana (www.adelaidemestre.com), first presented at the 2011 New York
International Fringe Festival, is a poignant musical memoir that recounts
a life of privilege and secrets. An autobiographical journey from the
Upper East Side of Manhattan to the old city streets of Havana, Cuba.
On a mission to re-discover her family's heritage, writer and performer
Adelaide Mestre seeks out her deceased father's piano, now residing in the
Bulgarian embassy in Havana and chronicles her life growing up in an
eccentric family with her father, a gay, Cuban, manic-depressive
concert-pianist and her mother, a strong willed, opera-singing, Park
Mestre's extraordinary life makes for a riveting theatrical experience. In
story and song, with sentiment and humor she shares of loss and struggle
but also a love of music and family that with forgiveness and
understanding becomes a story of triumph and hope. TOP DRAWER will make
you laugh, cry and maybe even...sing.
Cuban Museum and Miami Dade County Auditorium is located at 2901 West
Flagler Street, Miami, FL 33135. Call 305.529.5400 or visit
