THE GOLEM OF HAVANA
Music by Salomon Lerner
Lyrics By Len Schiff
Book and Direction by Michel Hausmann
A CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED MUSICAL EXPLORING THE LIVES OF A JEWISH FAMILY IN CUBA ON THE BRINK OF REVOLUTION.
An EPIC STORY WITH AN EXCITING SCORE THAT BLENDS CUBAN beats with traditional JEWISH tunes.
January 14th - February 7 2016
The Golem of Havana tells the story of a Hungarian-Jewish family living in Batista's Havana on the brink of the Cuban Revolution. When their maid's son, a guerrilla fighter, is injured, they must choose between protecting him and guarding their first fragile grasp on prosperity since their arrival. The Golem of Havana weaves together the music and traditions of two worlds, asking questions about family, community, religion, and politics.
