Queen of Basel

Studio Theatre
1501 14th St. NW Washington

It's Art Basel, Miami's weeklong party for the rich and famous, where socialite darling Julie reigns over the blowout her real-estate mogul father is throwing at his South Beach hotel. But when her fiance dumps her in front of the crowd, Julie hides from her humiliation-and her father-in the hotel's barely used storage kitchen. Her companions are Christine, a cocktail waitress who recently fled violence in Venezuela, and Christine's fiance John, an Uber driver with ambitions.

Talkin Broadway - Highly Recommended

"...The stakes are high for all three of them, and the actors are equally matched and watchable. Director Jose Zayas brings out the risks to all three through the drinking, the brawling (admirable fight choreography by Robb Hunter), the lust and the disillusionment, and the bristling use of language."

"...By play's end, no one's journey is complete. Each character leaves after a brief moment of improbable connectedness that has left them with a degree of hope, or at least thoughtfulness, about the course of their very different lives. For an audience, sharing such moments is what makes it worthwhile to attend theater."

"...What is striking in this new play is the displacement of the characters, their precariousness, and how they're never comfortable in their own skin. Julie holds tightly onto her Colombian identity despite being ¾ Caucasian. John is simultaneously not Black enough nor Cuban enough. Christine, a Venezuelan refugee fleeing Maduro, wants to get the rest of her family, including her 5-yr old daughter, over to Miami. John and Christine in particular repeat a familiar refrain over the play's brisk 100 minutes, a telling shorthand for their daily struggles and the pain they carry: "It's fine.""
