Adelaide Mestre

TOP DRAWER: Stories of Dysfunction and Redemption from Park Avenue to Havana, is Adelaide Mestre's award-winning show of her journey to Cuba to seek out her deceased father’s piano, left behind when her family fled in 1960.

The show takes place in both the past and present, as the audience follows her on her quest to reclaim her family’s heritage. In flashbacks, she chronicles her life growing up on Manhattan’s Upper East Side with her mother, a thrice married, opera-singing socialite with impossible “top-drawer” standards, and her father, a gay, Cuban, manic-depressive concert pianist.

In story and song, she shares about her parents doomed love affair, her father’s struggle with his homosexuality, and his eventual tragic suicide. On her journey, she learns of a famous speech her grandfather gave against Castro and recovers old recordings of her father playing the piano with an orchestra in Havana in 1954.

With sentiment and humor she spins a tale of dysfunction and redemption and shares her discovery that art is a kind of alchemy that transmutes loss and abandonment into freedom.TOP DRAWER will make you laugh, cry and maybe even... sing.

With Doug Oberhamer at the piano.
