¡HAVANA! is a celebration of Cuba's music and culture, journeying back in time to its 1950's heyday. Making its world debut on Norwegian Bliss and led by Tony Award®--winning director and choreographer Warren Carlyle, this lively musical is set at The Palace of Lights, where backstage intrigue combines with seductive rhythms and sultry dance moves to bring you an exhilarating, edge-of¬ your-seat production. The unforgettable show comes from a team of Broadway creative powerhouses, including famed Cuban-American design duo Ruben and Isabel Toledo, creators of the spectacular set and vivid costumes. Cast members in HAVANA will also have roles in Happy Hour the Musical, Prohibition Edition.
