Theater: The Star-Spangled Girl

By  |  0 Comments

Mar del Plata: Neil Simon arrives the argentine atlantic coast through his work. Directed by Manuel Gónzalez Gil, a handsome Raúl Taibo, a beautiful Mónica Ayos and a cute Marcelo De Bellis take into life “The Star-Spangled Girl”, 1966.

The story is a love triangle, mixed with politics. Andy and Norman are radicals who barely make a living working on their magazine, Fallout, which is dedicated to fighting “the system” in America. Sophie, a former Olympic swimmer, is an all-American, Southern girl who moves into the apartment next door. It’s love at first sight (or, as the play has it, first smell) for Norman, but his feelings are not reciprocated. Norman’s obsession with Sophie makes Andy hire her just to keep the magazine going. Then Sophie falls for Andy, though they are at odds politically, threatening to destroy the magazine and the men’s friendship.

Although rather naive for this moment, the excelent performances make us laugh and think about nonsense some do for love.
