A concert-style reading of this new musical featuring a live band and some of the area’s top performers.
It is 1960 and Maria and Juan are struggling to protect their son Carlos from the new communist regime in Cuba. They ultimately decide that he must fly to Miami without them, which he does, but the memories of his exodus haunt him for years to come. The new musical Cuban Courage helps us understand one family’s struggle for freedom . . . and the price that is paid . . . through its dramatic depiction of the secret child exodus now know as Operation Pedro Pan.
After suffering a potent physical trauma, Harlowe loses her sense of touch. When her sister brings her home to convalesce, she retreats to the bathroom and spends hour after hour languishing in the tub. Harlowe is a story of sisters and bodies; it is a story of how we heal.
