"Latin Standards" was named New York Times “Critic’s Pick” for its “winning heart and humor.” Written and performed by GLAAD award winner Marga Gomez and directed by David Schweizer, "Latin Standards" recalls Marga's childhood in Washington Heights with her father, Willy Chevalier, comedian, producer, songwriter, Cafe El Pico spokesperson, and prominent figure in the golden era of New York’s Latino variety shows. As a tribute to his memory, adult Marga defied reason and  launched a hipster comedy night at "Esta Noche," a doomed San Francisco Latino drag club, during the onset of the city's gentrification crisis. It's an energetic, funny and poignant story of perseverance and creative addiction passed down from immigrant father to lesbian daughter.
