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.
