Read Cherry and Spoon's full review
I really enjoyed the sweeping romance of the story and the charm of the production. My favorite part about this play was the bilingual script and the ability to enjoy the beautiful Spanish language. I've been studying Spanish for many years and I find myself at an intermediate level where I enjoy reading young adult novels in Spanish, so I was excited to stretch my listening skills during the show. Luckily, when I got a little behind I could just look up at the supertitles projected above the screen for a little English help.
I felt a little underwhelmed with the production at times when the acting felt a little stiff, but overall I found the cast and story to be lovely. And if you need a reminder of why we need love stories, playwright Caridad Svich tell us that, “in dark times, maybe in all times, a reminder that what sustains and connects us as human beings feels urgent. In writing Corazón Eterno (Always in my Heart), I was thinking about how we need to keep love and light in our hearts and how to remind ourselves that we sometimes need to render ourselves foolish to become vulnerable to the rites of passage Love demands of us. This play is, in part, a valentine to what we do in the name of seeking another with whom to share a life.”
Ticket Information: Corazón Eterno
Inspired by the magical realism of Nobel Prize winner Gabriel García Márquez (Love in the Time of Cholera), this is a poetic, romantic adventure of love ignited, denied, rekindled, rejected, and renewed; of love pragmatic and impossible, temporal and eternal; and ultimately of love that transforms the human experience.
