La Havana Madrid

Catch me acting in my first theatrical production La Havana Madrid! I hit the stage on June 15-16 at 3PM and June 19-22 at 7:30 PM

Back by popular demand, La Havana Madrid is Teatro Vista/Collaboraction ensemble member SandraDelgado’s immersive documentary theater experience, complete with live music, based on the true story of the 1960’s Chicago nightclub, La Havana Madrid. Inspired by real stories of Cuban, Puerto Rican and Colombian immigrants who found refuge there, La Havana Madrid recreates a special time and place in Chicago history by immersing audiences in the lively music of that decade, from mambo to salsa. Throughout, La Havana Madrid also tells how and why Latinos originally migrated to the shores of Lake Michigan, only to be pushed further west – away from the lake – by the forces of gentrification and racism.
