L.A. Theatre Works is known for producing stage plays as spectacular audio theater, and SONIA FLEW is no exception. In a dazzling two hours, the story covers the anguish of a mother whose only son enlists in the military following 9/11, the mother's own encounter with patriotism and revolution when she fled pre-Castro Cuba, and her inevitable but heartrending reconciliation with the costs of war. Sound effects and music are used with masterful economy—guitars welcome us to Cuba, and bombs shock us in Baghdad. But during dramatic scenes the audio lets the performances of the cast speak for themselves. With themes of war, patriotism, family, and freedom, SONIA FLEW is a compelling cross-cultural story.
