Scenes from "WILD OUT SUNDAY" Written by Nancy Nevarez, Directed by Arian Blanco
Three Lions Stage marked another amazing night of New York City Theater. Nancy Nevarez’ WILD OUT SUNDAY was incredible! The cast was amazing, so real, so very powerful with brilliant direction from Arian Blanco. The house was even more packed than Monday’s opening night of GODS AND THIEVES. The Q&A that followed was a brilliant display of qualitative, insightful and provocative thought. The audience could not seem to get enough of the play as evidenced by their intriguing questions. It was truly a night of personal revelations and self-discovery as audience members and cast members alike not only identified with the play and its characters but allowed themselves to be transformed and carried to a place of vulnerability, realism, and truth, at times coming face to face with the gritty reality of the ills of our society.
Nancy Nevarez’ brilliant writing brought audience members face to face with real live characters who transported them to the events of that ill fated day in 2000, yet allowing the audience to look into the human and family dysfunction which occurs in many families with brilliant sensitivity and humor. WILD OUT SUNDAY makes no apology for the tragic events that followed the Puerto Rican Day Parade in 2000, but rather serves as an indictment on the false images of manhood far too often overlooked, accepted, and otherwise promulgated to our youth through our families, friends, and the media.
