My Audition for Almodovar plays at Centro Espanol
A.C.E. Award-Winning Performance Returns
MY AUDITION FOR ALMODOVAR
February 13 - June 5 at Centro Espanol
Inma Heredia, winner of the A.C.E. Award for Best Actress by the Association Entertainment Critics of NYC, returns with her award-winning solo performance MY AUDITION FOR ALMODOVAR. Created and directed by Alberto Ferreras (creator of the Habla Series for HBO and author of the award winning novel “B as in Beauty”), performances will run at Centro Espanol from February 13 (opening) - June 5. MY AUDITION FOR ALMODOVAR explores the sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always absurd experiences of an actress who tries to succeed in America in spite of her thick Spanish accent. Complete with comedy, songs and flamenco dancing, it is a magical, musical, and hysterical journey from the heart of Seville to the small intestine of New York City. MY AUDITION FOR ALMODOVAR is the chance of a lifetime for an actress on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Inma Heredia is the first - and only - flamenco comedienne in the world. Born and raised in Seville, Spain, she has salero, a distinctive charm and charisma. She has trained at the London's Stopga Theatre Company, the Gardzienice Centre for Theatre Practices in Poland, and the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York. Her diverse stage credits include a national tour with Angry Jellow Bubbles, Dulcinea in "The Adventures of Don Quixote" at the Hudson Guild Theatre, Blanche in "A Streetcar Named Desire" at Playtime Series/Theater Vision, and "Culture for Peace" at the United Nations. She has also appeared at venues include the Apollo Theatre, the Comedy Store in Hollywood, and as hostess for the hit show "Latinas Don't P.M.S.” Her TV credits include HBO's Latino "Habla" and "Habla Ya" campaigns (directed by Alberto Ferreras), Comedy Central, HITN, Supercanal, Telemundo, and Univision. On the big screen, Inma stars opposite Louis Zorich in the Giovanis Brothers award-winning film "Run It." Her solo show MY AUDITION FOR ALMODOVAR premiered in July of 2010 at Teatro IATI’s Performing Arts Marathon before moving to Centro Español where it ran in October and November 2010. MY AUDITION FOR ALMODOVAR runs Sundays February 13, March 6, April 3, May 1 & June 5 at 7:00pm. Centro Español is located at 239 West 14th Street, between 7th Ave and 8th Avenues (accessible from the A, C, E, 1, 2, 3, & L trains). Running time is 75 minutes. Tickets are $25, available atwww.MyAlmodovar.com
