"Jim Stowell is more than a storyteller in "Cuba Si," his recollection and
reconciliation of things past. He is a weaver of exquisite skill who draws distinct
and disparate threads together into a tapestry vibrant with the colors of politics,
history and personal regret... Stowell has long been an adept, risky and
courageous spinner of tales, but what's most impressive in Cuba Si is his skill as
a writer. This play is finely structured, each division leading easily to the next, and
all serving a grander purpose that makes this tapestry an artistic and brilliant
piece of work."
"That Jim Stowell survived to write Tribes, the gripping one-man account of his
experiences on the Rio Breu, is a miracle itself, one that Stowell has translated
even more miraculously to the stage...Stowell can create entire worlds on stage,
helped in part by Steven Krahnke's evocative set, but mostly because of his own
vivid vision and tireless energy. Tribes is an exhilarating journey to a land where
time should stand still, but won't. Visit before it's too late."
