Male Matriarch (part of FringeNYC 2011) the autobiographical story of its star and creator Amir Levi, challenges postmodern gay identity through his cultural desire to create a nuclear family based on traditional values. Strongly influenced by the love stories of his mother and grandmother, Amir shares his Builla’s rhythm and mother’s taste in curly-haired men, and thinks he’s destined to be the next matriarch of his Mexican Jewish American family. But when his first relationship crumbles, dashing his boyhood dreams, he quickly finds that the fairy tale courtships of his beloved matriarchs seem nowhere to be found.
