Loli Marquez-Sterling to Perform at Plymouth State University

April 14th, 2004 by Adam

Plymouth, N.H.—Singer, actress and zany cabaret performer Loli Marquez-Sterling comes to Plymouth with her eight-piece Latin band for a special performance of her show Loli but not Alone at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 28, in the Hartman Union Building at Plymouth State University.

Renowned for her unique and energetic shows, Loli reaches deep into her historic Cuban roots to deliver exciting and vivid performances rich with humor yet touching on serious themes with songs such as Mi Tierra, a powerful and moving piece about freedom for Cuba. In pre-Castro Cuba, her grandfather ran for president in 1958.

In this critically acclaimed show, Marquez-Sterling pokes fun at Latin stereotypes, politics and her experiences growing up in New England (Plymouth, N.H.) the daughter of émigré Cuban parents.

She has performed for audiences in Spanish, Italian and English from the Rainbow Room in New York City to the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Beach, Calif., and was enthusiastically received by Italian audiences in Rome.

The performance is sponsored by Plymouth State University student organizations PACE and the World Language Society, and the President’s Commission on Diversity in conjunction with the annual International Week.

Tickets are on sale ($8/$5) at Chase Street Market on Main Street, Plymouth; and in the Hartman Union Building on the Plymouth State campus April 14 and 15 and 19 – 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
