Tony-Award Winner Mario Fratti's new play is a powerful blend of
passion and sensuality, heightened by the fervor of South American
music and dance - tango, bolero and salsa to be exact.  The Colonel's
Wife, charmingly portrayed by Roi Escudero "Bubi," weaves a tale
of romance and betrayal fueled by lust and loneliness.  A courageous
woman who has conquered a new world after surviving the upheaval
in Argentina, she suffers the cruelest cut of all when she allows
herself to be deluded in matters of love.  The play is a multi-sensory
experience.  In addition to music and dance, a Hostess (special
appearance by Alex McCord) serves as the wife's inner musings and
conscience.  You are guided along her road of illusions and fantasies
by a film depicting her encounter with her American lover.  And as
the lady is forced to face some harsh realities about her lover, as well
as herself, you feel as if you have undergone the revelations yourself. 
The Colonel's Wife evolves beautifully and takes you willingly
along on its mesmerizing journey.
