Gente Bien

Gente Bien. El Musical (Wealthy People. The Musical)

In all La Cubana’s shows there has been singing and dancing; but we have always confronted this with skilful simulation, rather than with proper specialised skills. Now, due to rather compelling reasons, we find ourselves forced to produce a musical. Why? Well, you will have to come to see the show to find out. As a starting point, La Cubana has chosen “Gente Bien” (Wealthy People), a funny comedy of manners, written by Santiago Rusiñol in 1917. We have come up with a special journey which travels back to the time of the Rusiñol play, where the characters reveal to us that the need to pretend has no measure, no time and no expiring date.

So, La Cubana is producing a musical. Will we be able to do it? So far, we have come up with an enjoyable comic opera… The rest is yet to be seen… Will we get away with it? Who knows? But, whatever happens we will for sure strive to make good theatre!!!
