Trading Soles (World Premiere)
Theater by Magna Verum Prod/Joseph Adam Gonzalez (Comedy) Composer/Orchestrator "Trading Soles" is an original play written by Franco Colon (Book) in collaboration with Christopher Robinson (Composer/Orchestrator/Publicist), Hector Sanchez, Jr. (Producer), Vanessa Toro (Stage Manager) and Joseph Adam Gonzalez (Director). - CAST - 'Ben'.................JUSTIN CORTES 'Eli'....................FRANCO COLON 'God'.................JOSEPH ADAM GONZALEZ 'Henry'..............ARIUS WEST 'Jo'...................BEEJAY AUBERTIN CLINTON 'Mom'...............CRYSTA MARIE 'Dad'.................ROBERT CUNHA 'CIA Agents'.....ADONIS PEREZ and MEXEITA RODNEY The play examines what it feels like to live in the shoes of someone you don't understand... Literally. Trading Soles is focused around two main characters, BEN and ELI, who are complete opposites. BEN is a straight male who's main focus is to do well in school. ELI, on the other hand, is more focused on parties and the "college experience". BEN and ELI really don't like each other. It is impossible for them to get along because of their differences. They don't make any attempts to show empathy towards one another, and that's when the chaos begins. They switch bodies. Now BEN and ELI have no choice but to come together and figure out what in the world just happened.
