Come see the theater adaptation of King of Cuba, a darkly comic portrait of an aging dictator, his nemesis, and a rabble of Cuban voices.

“A wicked pleasure!” –NPR


A fictionalized Fidel Castro grapples with the stale end of his life, vowing to salvage the legacy of his nearly sixty-year revolution. Goyo Herrera, an octogenarian Miami exile, plots revenge against his longtime enemy–the very same El Comandante–whom he blames for stealing his beloved and ruining his homeland.

Starring the legendary Marga Gomez as El Comandante!

With: Zuzy Martín Lynch, Fernando Pujals, Jose Enrique Pardo, Chris Gueits, Achy Obejas, and Claire Calderón.

Live music by Cuban percussionist, Carlos Caro.
