An award winning writer and performer, Adelaide Mestre mines the autobiographic material of her childhood and family history, chronicling the trials and tribulations of growing up in an eccentric family among artists and over the top personalities.

Her latest solo-show, Top Drawer: Stories of Dysfunction and Redemption from Park Avenue to Havana, begins on Manhattan's Upper East Side and follows a fractured journey to the old city streets of Havana. Told in story and song, it is the story of her return to Cuba, the daughter of a Cuban exile carrying the memories and heartache of her family, as she searches for her father’s piano that was left behind when they fled in 1960. The show takes place in both the past and present, as the audience follows her on her quest to reclaim her family’s heritage. With sentiment and humor she chronicles her life growing up with her mother, a thrice married, opera-singing socialite with impossible top-drawer standards, and her father, a gay, Cuban, manic-depressive concert pianist. TOP DRAWER will make you laugh, cry and maybe even... sing.
