In Miami politics, anything can happen, and it does.
The heir apparent to a Miami political dynasty, Carolina Clarens, is the seemingly perfect candidate to be the next mayor. The only problem is…nobody likes her. Why? She’s an unbearable, arrogant, way-too-honest candidate that’s rough around the edges and tanking in the polls. Meet Alex, the slick D.C. political consultant tasked with smoothing out her edges and getting her elected.
Based on Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, The Cuban Vote draws you into the middle of Carolina and Alex’s quest for the Mayorship and each other. A romantic – and, of course, political – comedy that can only happen in Miami, turns into tremendo arroz con mango and all for the coveted Cuban vote. A world-premiere play by Carmen Pelaez (Miami New Drama’s Fake and 7 Deadly Sins).
