En medio de una crisis social sin precedentes, el rey Ubu se ve obligado a regresar a la isla que el mismo fundo: la mitica Uba, donde el pueblo se ha rebelado ante la miseria imperante. Para colmo, una pandemia desconocida invade el mundo a gran velocidad y amenaza con penetrar en la isla. Convencido de la inmunidad de sus habitantes, Ubu lanza una insolita propuesta para recapitalizar el pais en medio del desastre, sin intuir que su estrategia provocaraa un aciago desenlace.

Amid an unprecedented social crisis, King Ubu is forced to return to the island he founded, the mythical Uba, whose people have rebelled in response to widespread poverty. To top it off, a hitherto unknown pandemic is overrunning the world at lightning speed and threatening to spread onto the island. Convinced of the residents' immunity, Ubu launches an unusual campaign to build up the country in the midst of the disaster, not realizing his strategy will prompt a fateful outcome.

Be More Chill the Musical

Next date: Feb 4, 2022 - click here for time schedule - English

The high-energy show poses the question:

  • What if popularity came in a pill?
  • Would you take it, no questions asked?

In Be More Chill, achieving that elusive "perfect life" is now possible thanks to some mysterious new technology-but it comes at a cost that's not as easy to swallow. Blending the contemporary with retro sci-fi, this thrillingly exciting, comically subversive, and deeply felt new musical takes on the competing voices in all of our heads. And ultimately proves, there's never been a better time in history.

Be More Chill opened regionally in 2015 and quickly shot to internet stardom. After selling out the off-Broadway production in 2018, it quickly transferred to Broadway in 2019 to widespread commercial success. "Be More Chill is one of the strongest new musicals of the past decade, a charming, astutely crafted tale of neurotic post-millennial geeks in love whose appeal is in no way limited to those whom it portrays." says The Wall Street Journal. Variety calls it "a memorable thrill ride, a zealously caffeinated high school musical." Be More Chill is the wiliest and socially savviest night out for contemporary theatre audiences. London's The Guardian raved "to watch Be More Chill is to glimpse an authentic portrait of the soaring joys and plunging agonies of adolescence." This is "A show that surprises and delights, packed with wit and wisdom..." said BroadwayWorld.com.

Rubenology: The Making of an American Legend

Next date: Jul 14, 2022 - click here for time schedule - English

The legendary Ruben Rabasa (who Andy Garcia called "La Gloria de Cuba") takes the wheel of his own one-person show to tell us about the wild ride of his life - all 83 years of it and counting.

Rabasa takes us from Cuba to the United States; from santeros to his saving grace, his mom. It's funny and silly and full of heart, just like Rabasa himself, who has a thing or two to teach us - his Rubenology - about being an actor, a lover, a friend, a son, a Cuban-American and an American. A WORLD PREMIERE!
