THANKS to everyone who came to see Don’t Cry For Me
And thanks so much for all your comments. Here you have some of them:
Dear Paulino, I want to express my deep gratitude and admiration for your Naked Stages performance piece. I learned so much about you. I loved the different characters and you embodied each one with so much skill and commitment. Your mom was especially touching. Dr. Knowles was hilarious, yes! Anyways I just wanted to let you know how much your artistry was appreciated. You killed it! Much love and respect!
Paulino, This piece demonstrates much more range and depth of your performing skills.
Great work Paulino! Loved it!
Congratulations on a fabulous show!
The performance was excellent and thought-provoking.
You’re so totally endearing and committed on stage, it’s always great to see you perform.

You were awesome tonight, I was very impressed…
The mixing of Spanish and English in your performance without translating every word is terrific and your representations of such a range of characters. I hope you heard me laughing. Thank you!
A wonderful piece, interesting and complete. You displayed a great range of emotions and the transitions between character was very clear. Great work!
Thank you Paulino (and Dr. Knowles) for sharing such a moving personal piece.
Thanks so much for sharing your journey. What an honor to get to be a witness to the expression of it. Best wishes – keep on creating!! Your spirit, humor, gentleness and humanness really comes thru.
That was amazing!
It was great! I was really impressed. You are a good and passionate actor.
Very poignant show! Thanks for making it.
Your story was very well put together – making me laugh and then wanting to cry. Very funny! I was constantly engages and loved hearing your story. Thank you!
Brilliant! Your timing and movement was delightful. The narrative was beautiful – had both tears of laughter/joy and heartache. I want to see more.
Beautiful show! While there was a lot of humor, I also thought it was quite profound.
I can’t recall seeing a better first person narrative that was so moving. The use of language was superb.
Thank you so much for your art. Our stories and struggles have so many similarities and strength, questions, gains and losses struck such a similar chord in me that I started bawling towards the end. It never happened to me before , not in a show anyway.
Paulino, me ha encantado. No esperaba algo tan impactante, genuino y verdadero. Eres un educador puro y se nota que querías usar tu obra no solamente para expresar tu historia, sino también educar a los que no saben cómo es inmigrar. Gracias por esta experiencia! Respeto mucho lo que has hecho aquí.
Me has sorprendido, y me ha encantado, a la vez que me has hecho llorar. Cabrón! :-)
