A Spanish playwright conquests Broadway with Theater at English

Premiere on Broadway is a dream for many, for a Spanish author is little more than a chimera. However, if there is a scenario in which illusions can happen is the city of New York. An example is the Spanish writer Mar Gómez Glez, who in June released his work 39 Defaults , written in English, during the theater festival organized  Teatro Stage Fest.  Teather La MaMa also scheduled for 2013.

Playwright, small but intense gaze and determined, was born in Madrid 34 years ago and moved to the Big Apple in 2007. The writer has just won the Calderon de la Barca Award by  Numbers , that the artist director Mike Bradwell, defines his style as a cross between Monty Python and Chekhov. “I could not have received a higher compliment,” laughed Gomez, who in 2007 was also awarded the Beckett for his first play, Fuga Mundi . In 2010 he published his first novel, Reversing (Parentheses, 2010) and is now about to finish a book of stories.

Una espanyola conquista Broadway con teatro en ingles

Si estrenar en Broadway es un sueño inalcanzable para muchos, para un autor español es poco más que una quimera. Sin embargo, si hay un escenario en el que las ilusiones pueden hacerse realidad es la ciudad de Nueva York. Un ejemplo es el de la escritora española Mar Gómez Glez, que en junio estrenará su obra 39 defalults, escrita en inglés, durante el festival que organiza el teatro Stage Fest. La MaMa Teather también la ha programado para 2013.

La dramaturga, menuda pero de mirada intensa y decidida, nació en Madrid hace 34 años y se mudó a la Gran Manzana en 2007 para estudiar un doctorado en la Universidad de Nueva York. La escritora acaba de ganar el Premio de teatro Calderón de la Barca 2011 por Cifras. El autor del prólogo, el director de escena Mike Bradwell, define su estilo como una mezcla entre Chéjov y los Monty Python. “No podía haber recibido un halago mayor”, ríe Gómez, que en 2007 también fue galardonada con el Premio Beckett por su primera obra de teatro, Fuga Mundi. En 2010 publicó su primera novela, Cambio de sentido (Paréntesis, 2010) y ahora está a punto de finalizar un libro de relatos.
