Teatro Vista’s La Havana Madrid by Sandra Delgado will playt Goodman Theatre this summer, July 21 – August 20, after runs at Steppenwolf and The Miracle Center in Logan Square. Sandra Delgado’s piece is directed by Cheryl Lynn Bruce, inspired by true stories of Cuban, Puerto Rican and Colombian immigrants who found refuge in the Chicago nightclub. Delgado leads the eight-member cast, alongside Colombian-American musician Roberto “Carpacho” Marin and his band of 30 years, Carpacho y Su Super Combo.
“My journey with La Havana Madrid is a dream come true. It has been an absolute joy and honor to share this story with my fellow Chicagoans and I am incredibly grateful that we get to keep the love alive this summer,” said playwright and co-star Sandra Delgado. “It is especially sweet to come home to Goodman Theatre, where I wrote La Havana Madrid as part of the Playwright’s Unit in the 2015/2016 Season. I cannot wait to invite audiences into the Owen Theatre, which will be transformed into the La Havana Madrid nightclub, night after night.”In addition to Delgado, the eight-member cast also includes Teatro Vista
In addition to Delgado, the eight-member cast also includes Tommy Rivera-Vega, Marvin Quijada, Mike Oquendo, Donovan Diaz, and Krystal Ortiz. Original cast members Cruz Gonzalez-Cadel and Phoebe González are unable to continue with the production and their roles are being recast for the Goodman remount. The design team includes Ashley Woods (set), Elsa Hiltner (costumes), Heather Sparling (lights), Mikhail Fiksel (sound), Liviu Pasare (projections and video design) and William Carlos Angulo (choreography).
