Buena Vista Social Club - absolutely wonderful!

This great musical left me on Cloud 9. From that first guitar chord until the final notes this was a simple yet incredible powerful experience for me. The struggle to express yourself against great odds, political and personal, are dramatized with such skill. Yes, the songs are not in English, but I understood everything I needed to. The dancing is incredible and reminds me of Michael Bennett’s Ballroom- social dancing at the core but elevated to tell dramatic moments when words are not enough. The three dancing couples are astonishing. But the true star of the night for me is the first character we meet, in the hat, playing the guitar with every fiber of his being. He is truly the heart and soul of the show. The set and lighting are just stunning. One moment will take your breath away. The cast is uniformly great. I just cannot find all the right adjectives to express how this evening made me feel. See it in this intimate space, as it will move and grow and you will never get this close to the experience ever again. What a night!
