Totally Compelling Theater.

“Watching actor-playwright Jay Alvarez perform in ‘Be Careful! The Sharks Will Eat You!’ you may be fooled into thinking that it’s not a solo show at all, but a stage filled with a large and vibrant company of actors giving their all in telling how Alvarez’s family escaped from their native Cuba and Fidel Castro’s oppressive regime. With seemingly bottomless reserves of passion and skill, Alvarez fully and instantaneously transforms from one character to another. His storytelling resonates with heartfelt immediacy, as does his love of country and family. His script has been cannily crafted to build suspense. This is totally compelling theater.”
