Join guest host Sarika Mehta for Stage and Studio LIVE with artistic director Damaso Rodriguez and Tiempo Libre's Jorge Gomez as they chat about the multi-year process creating Cuba Libre and how this original, large-scale world premiere musical production came to Portland!
Tune in to this episode of Stage & Studio on Tuesday, October 13 at 11 am on KBOO!
Cuba Libre is a story of Cuban America: The irresistible rhythms of Cuban music drive this riveting, universal story of a man caught between countries, losses and loves, and his search for freedom. Set in America and Cuba, this timely tale reverberates across politics, ambition and romance with quick-witted dialogue, joy-filled dance and Latin-fusion beats. This Broadway-scale, contemporary musical features the internationally acclaimed, three-time Grammy-nominated band Tiempo Libre with a company of 21 actors, dancers and musicians in a not-to-be-missed theatrical event.
Cuba Libre is playing at the Dolores Winningstad Theatre now and extended through Nov. 15th! Find tickets and learn more here!
