Felix A. Pire doesn't have a false moment
Anita Gates, The New York Times
Just how many relatives can a Cuban have? And just how many characters can one actor play? You won't believe your eyes!
Outer Circle Winner for Outstanding Solo Performance, Felix Pire returns after his Urban Stages' Off Broadway commercial triumph in Men on the Verge of a HISPANIC Breakdown by Guillermo Reyes. Origins of Happiness is a hilarious collection of family stories delivered by Felix Pire, first-generation Cuban-American whose mother was an extra in Cuban movies in the 1960s.Ý Using a full-vocabulary of body language and a variety of Cuban and Cuban-American accents Pire creates a colorful assortment of characters-most of them are members of his large extended family.
