HOTEL PUERTO VALLARTA, a legitimate work of dramatic theatre
- Cheryl Bear:2 Apr. 2021“ A fabulous and heartfelt comedy that just sings as, through all the drama of the sale, there's a lot of love. Well done! ”
- John Bavoso:7 Feb. 2021“ If Molière, The Golden Girls, and To Wong Fu had a drag daughter, it would be HOTEL PUERTO VALLARTA! Davila has crafted such fun, over-the-top characters, and the badinage absolutely sparkles on every page. Underneath the bawdy double-entendres are classic themes of love, jealousy, betrayal, and finding the thing that makes you feel (w)hole. A delightfully campy read that would be a blast for an exuberantly queer cast—highly recommended! ”
- Nelson Diaz-Marcano:24 Jan. 2021“ A farce with not just a lot of heart, but with complex explorations of what love means. Love as a friend, as a mentor, as a daughter, as a lover, or as a partner, all get their time in this piece without ever feeling like they are the focus of it all. That is because David manages to embed these musings within a farcical romp that will have you laughing from start to finish. ”
