Havana Music Hall

This brand new musical was selected specifically by Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre’s artistic team to develop in Miami on its way to Broadway.
An exciting world premiere, Havana Music Hall reflects the pulse of our community with its irresistible musical beat and heartwarming story centering on Cuban musicians Rolando and Ramona Calderon, and their lives in Cuba from 1958 to the present. Just as their local Havana band is about to get its big break, the Revolution tears apart the only world the duo have ever known.
This moving and relevant new musical explores the challenges and joys of one family’s 50-year odyssey for survival, presenting a journey which immigrants of all cultures from around the world have traveled for generations.
