Upand Down DesuVida

By David Johanssen

“Toto, I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Los Frailes anymore!”—Up and Down in San Miguel cabaret show.

Just when you thought you knew how outrageous San Miguel de Allende could be, Shelter Theater’s bilingual cabaret, Up and Down in San Miguel shows you more—lots more! Using razor-tongued characters to spotlight the latest chisme (gossip) about San Miguel de Allende, this live “TV/cabaret” show will have you howling with laughter at deliciously juicy gossip, songs, satire, and special guests. Starring Venezuelan actor Christian Baumgartner in his gender-bending role of “Maritza, Miss Venezuela, 1989” and New Yorker magazine’s cartoonist and comedienne Victoria Roberts, the duo lights up the Shelter stage Wednesday, April 13, at 7:30pm and Saturday, April 16, at 7:30pm. Tickets available at the Biblioteca and at www.sheltervg4.com, 150 pesos.

Saturday, April 9, at 5pm: Cuba without Fidel. The debate surrounding post-Castro Cuba is more prevalent than ever. Raul Castro himself has declared, “The country must change to avoid sinking.” Another proof of the “revolution” prompted by Raul Castro, Fidel’s brother and heir to his throne, is enabling his fellow citizens to legally trade property and enjoy restricted Internet access. Learn what impact the end of the embargo will have on the daily lives of Cubans. Discussion to follow, 50 pesos.

Friday, April 15, at 7pm: Enjoy an encore presentation of James Earl Jones’ classic 1979 one-man show remembering the civil-rights activist and operatic star Paul Robeson and his haunting bass baritone voice. Best known for his stirring singing of “Ol’ Man River,” James Earl Jones, one of America’s best-loved actors, brings Robeson to life, underlining how his art and politics were inextricably linked. 100 pesos (with complimentary drink).
