"Think Keats meets Bob Marley meet Tupac" is how one reviewer described Carlos Andres Gómez's one-man play based on his life. Now the award-winning poet and actor brings his coming-of-age story to a wider audience. Though his experiences are in some ways unique (he grew up in twelve cities and four countries), Gómez's account of breaking inherited stereotypes of masculinity has implications far beyond those of a conventional personal memoir. His Man Up grapples with the crises that young men today are facing, human problems that pop up on statistics about graduation rates, unemployment, and teen and young adult suicide. A powerful wake-up call from someone who has been there.
