  La Havana Madrid at The Den Theatre

La Havana Madrid

The Den Theatre
1329-1333 N. Milwaukee Chicago

Back by popular demand, La Havana Madrid transports audiences back to a popular 1960s Chicago nightclub of the same name, where Latino immigrants new to Chicago found refuge to gather, meet, sing, dance, dine, find love and discover their destinies. Inspired by real stories of Cuban, Puerto Rican and Colombian immigrants, La Havana Madrid recreates a special time and place in Chicago history by immersing audiences in the lively music of that decade. Throughout, La Havana Madrid reveals how and why Latinos originally migrated to the shores of Lake Michigan, only to be pushed further west - away from the lake - by the forces of gentrification and racism.

Windy City Times - Highly Recommended

"...That's right—the music. Delgado is not content to merely tell "our story," but also recreates the Havana Madrid in the Den's Heath Mainstage, whose dimensions approximate those they duplicate more closely than previous auditoriums, and thus easily accommodates Roberto "Carpacho" Marin y Su Super Combo, ( featuring Carol McPherson on dancing trombone ) and Delgado herself as guest vocalist/emcee, along with hoofers Victor Musoni, Marvin Quijada, and Tommy Rivera-Vega burning up the floor with Wilfredo Rivera's choreography. Oh, and did I mention the evening's agenda including several "dance breaks" for playgoers to salsa in the aisles?"

"...When we see a play for its second time, we often notice things that were missed earlier. As I always say, the beauty of “live theater” is that every performance is unique and can be considered an original. Now in its third incarnation, “La Havana Madrid” a story about the settling of areas of Chicago and those who migrated to our city has much more than entertainment values. It is as educational a piece as it is entertaining, and there is no way that one can leave the Den Theatre without feeling the spirit of those in this sparkling cast of players."

"...Delgado's rich urban work brims with confidence, optimism and hope. She sums up the inspirational immigrant spirit of the era as a metaphor for today-a respect for past sacrifices and continuation of the beauty, music and love that shapes our lives. "We are living on these layers," she says, "pass it on.""
