The world-premiere musical Havana Music Hall revolves around the lives of Havana Music Hall's best-known musicians, who are just about to get their big break — and then Fidel Castro seizes power.
Set in 1958 Cuba, the show tells the story of husband-and-wife musical team Rolando and Ramona Calderon, who are on the verge of making it big when the Cuban Revolution tears apart the only life they've ever known. Almost 60 years later, the couple tries to forget the past in the now-devastated Havana Music Hall, but others won't let them. Directed and choreographed by Maria Torres (On Your Feet!), Havana Music Hall features a book by Carmen Pelaez (Rum & Coke) and original music and lyrics by Richard Kagan.
