In her tour-de-force one-woman show, she reveals a patchwork of gritty reality and inventive detail, fleshing out greater issues of race, class, family, and politics with grace, pathos, and humor. Liberty City is a distinctly Miami story, but its already won acclaim in New York, where it was nominated for Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Outstanding Solo Performance.
