Coming Out of a Different Closet

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.
