Adelaide Mestre’s TOP DRAWER: Stories of Dysfunction and Redemption from Park Avenue to Havana (www.adelaidemestre.com), first presented at the 2011 New York International Fringe Festival, is a poignant musical memoir that recounts a life of privilege and secrets. An autobiographical journey from the Upper East Side of Manhattan to the old city streets of Havana, Cuba.

On a mission to re-discover her family’s heritage, writer and performer Adelaide Mestre seeks out her deceased father’s piano, now residing in the Bulgarian embassy in Havana and chronicles her life growing up in an eccentric family with her father, a gay, Cuban, manic-depressive concert-pianist and her mother, a strong willed, opera-singing, Park Avenue socialite. Mestre’s extraordinary life makes for a riveting theatrical experience. In story and song, with sentiment and humor she shares of loss and struggle but also a love of music and family that with forgiveness and understanding becomes a story of triumph and hope. TOP DRAWER will make you laugh, cry and maybe even…sing.
