Step back in time to 1960s Chicago and right into La Havana Madrid, the long-gone Caribbean night club that drew throngs of newly-arrived Latinos to the city’s north side. La Havana Madrid, a vibrant, musical venue, became a cultural hub for these new Chicagoans.

Inspired by real life stories of those who flocked to the club to celebrate and remember, this intimate recreation of the lively 1960s music club, conceived and written by Sandra Delgado and directed by Cheryl Lynn Bruce, features live music and will immerse you in the pulsing sounds of that decade from the mambo to the new sound of salsa.

Legendary Colombian-American musician Roberto "Carpacho" Marin, and his band of 30 years, Carpacho y Su Super Combo, will play live every show. Together, the play’s band and cast will chronicle the history of Caribbean Latino music and Chicagoans throughout the decade.

La Havana Madrid is made possible by The Joyce Foundation and The Community Trust. Production sponsors are Chicago Latino Theater Alliance (CLATA) and Maria C. Bechily & Scott Hodes.

Cumberland Irving and Purple Group are Teatro Vista’s Season Sponsors.
