Eduardo Machado's latest play, Crocodile Eyes, will have its world premiere at Off-Off-Broadway's Theater for the New City, April 22-May 9.
Crocodile Eyes, based on Lorca's classic House of Bernada Alba, centers around the day and evening following the funeral of Bernada Alba's husband. Pepe aims to marry Alba's eldest daughter, Augustia, for her inheritance while seducing her younger sister, Adela.
Machado is primarily known for his "Floating Island" plays, a series of four tragic comedies on a Cuban family's destiny and assimilation into America. Machado will direct Eyes and recently finished writing and directing his first feature film, "Exiles in New York," which will open the Santa Barbara film festival in May.
Starring in the TNC production are Victor Argo, Crystal Field, Heather Hill, Jerry Jaffe, Joe Quintero, Ron Riley, Ed Vassallo, and Tatyana Yassukovich.
