Cascada de Flores bring intoxicating energy to the Latin American songbook

Featuring Arwen Lawrence’s ravishing voice and guitarist Jorge Liceaga
supple accompaniment, Cascada de Flores bring intoxicating energy to
the Latin American songbook. But with their new show “Radio Flor,” the
ensemble has created a delightful frame for their repertoire of
emotionally wrought boleros, rhythmically insistent sones, bamcucos,
guarachas, and even a soaring Rodgers and Hart gem. Designed like a
vintage radio broadcast, the production includes station
identifications, hilarious mock commercials, and a brief radio drama
starring Liceaga as El Dandy. Playful, witty and artfully staged, the
show is as charming as the music is breathtaking. Lawrence and Liceaga
have once again earned their bouquets.
