Publisher Description

Broadway's acclaimed enfant terrible, two-time Tony Award nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega (Rent, Anna in the Tropics, The Rocky Horror Show, A Streetcar Named Desire), reprises her acclaimed tour de force performance in this chillingly intimate, unique recording.

Now living deep under Manhattan in an abandoned subway tunnel with the Mole People, a very hungry Dolores recounts her years selling weed with her boyfriend, her return to Washington Heights after 13 years in prison, her fortuitous reunion with an old stoner friend who lets her give massages for cash in the basement under his empanada shop, and the bloodbath that sent her fleeing underground. Loosely inspired by the legend of Sweeney Todd, Empanada Loca is "contemporary Grand Guignol horror in the style of Spalding Gray."

Empanada Loca was originally produced on stage by Labyrinth Theater Company (Mimi O'Donnell, Artistic Director; Danny Feldman, Executive Director), opening on October 21st, 2015.

Recording produced by Aaron Mark and Daphne Rubin-Vega; directed by Aaron Mark; recorded by Andrew Hollander at Sugarbox Studios, NYC; edited by Aaron Gittleman; sound design by Ryan Rumery.

I am familiar with Ms Rubin-Vegas work on stage but was totally blown away by this performance. She was captivating as Delores and had me enthralled throughout. What a story. Kudos to her and Mark Adams!!!
