Coming Out of a Different Closet 

Wednesday, Sep 14 2011
Marga Gomez is a stand-up comedian and solo performer. Her eight previous performances include Long Island Iced Latina and Marga Gomez is Pretty, Witty & Gay. Now Gomez, who long ago came out as a lesbian, comes out as, well, aging in Not Getting Any Younger. Although she aimed for total honesty in the performance, Gomez says she never reveals her age, and sometimes she even lies about her age -- and that she got a lot of support from people over 40 about that when she did the performance in workshops. In fact one theater professional told her, "You're being honest by lying." It's just one of many tragi-comic revelations from Gomez in this piece.
Nov. 17-19; Nov. 25-26; Thursdays-Saturdays; Fridays, Saturdays. Starts: Nov. 17. Continues through Feb. 25, 2011

The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
