"Absurd Celebration...", a tribute.

Then, yesterday I went to see "El juego de Electra"- ("Electra’s Play") by Mephisto Teatro from Spain. Director Liuba Cid based this on Virgilio Piñera’s classic Electra Garrigó, the play that marks Cuba’s entrance to Modernism, Liuba Cid’s version brings to Miami a Cuban-Spanish cast of stars which included Strawberry and Chocolate’s Vladimir Cruz as Agamemnon and a very lovely and loved actress I remember from TV novelas back when I was a kid, and which I hadn't seen ever again, Yolanda Ruiz as Clitemnestra. Centered on the play’s classic myth, this version underscores seduction and the psychological, sociological and human depth of its main characters. The non-realist staging, however, is stylized by the avant-garde theatrical languages of Virgilio’s times.
Will be back to report on the next three plays as I see them.

There are a number of US soap actors and actresses who've done theater and film before joining soap operas and have gone back and forth, most notably Lane Davies of "Santa Barbara," but most of the soap actors who became famous in film or more prestigious TV shows haven't looked back until their older years.

Oh, I enjoyed his work on SB very much (watched while I was avoiding work on thesis in grad school) but lost track of his career after that. Thank you so much for the reminder -- I shall have to wander around the net and see what he's been doing.
