TOP DRAWER: Dysfunction and Redemption from Park Avenue to Havana
TOP DRAWER: Dysfunction and Redemption from Park Avenue to Havana, first produced in the 2011 New York International Fringe is writer and performer Adelaide Mestres autobiographical story of her journey to Cuba to seek out her deceased fathers piano, left behind when her family fled in 1960. The show takes place in both the past and present, as the audience follows her on her quest to reclaim her familys heritage. In flashbacks, she chronicles her life growing up on Manhattans Upper East Side with her mother, a thrice married, opera-singing socialite with impossible top-drawer standards, and her father, a gay, Cuban, manic-depressive concert pianist. In story and song, she shares about her parents doomed love affair, her fathers struggle with his homosexuality, and his eventual tragic suicide. On her journey, she learns of a famous speech her grandfather gave against Castro and recovers old recordings of her father playing the piano with an orchestra in Havana in 1954. With sentiment and humor she spins a tale of dysfunction and redemption and, ultimately, shares her discovery that art can be a kind of alchemy that transmutes loss and abandonment into freedom. TOP DRAWER will make you laugh, cry and maybe even... sing.

Top Drawer is written and performed by Adelaide Mestre, directed by Coco Cohn and features Doug Oberhamer at the piano.
