Author of last season’s hit, King of Cuba!

Cristina García returns to Central Works to adapt another one of her lush, sensual novels.  The Lady Matador’s Hotel follows the denizens of a luxurious hotel in the capital of an unnamed Central American country in the midst of political turmoil.  There is the matadora in town for a bullfight.  There is an ex-guerrilla now working as a waitress in the hotel.  And there is a colonel who committed atrocities in the country’s long civil war.  Each day, the pull of revenge and desire draws them closer and closer together.

“Has the energy of an obsessive tango.  Or, indeed, a bullfight.”—NY Times
