Vamos Cuba rehearsals in Havana
Cal McCrystal the new Vamos Cuba! director flew out to Havana for rehearsals with the cast, crew, and musicians. He spent just over a week working on the show in a studio in Havana and at the end of the week was joined by Suzanne Walker, Sadler’s Wells Executive Producer.
Between now and September Cal will be working with the Vamos Cuba! team on finessing the show, which will be at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley, The Peacock in London, and Théâtre de la Ville de Luxembourg in October.

Latitude shows some gratitude for our Cuban attitude
The Sadler’s Wells Waterfront stage was given some Cuban caliente-y spirit on Friday night as an excerpt of Vamos Cuba! was performed to the huge crowd who gathered around the stage at every direction bopping along with the dancers. The atmosphere was buzzing and music popping as the show dazzled from reggaeton emcee-ing to cha-cha-cha to some sexy salsa. As The Daily Telegraph put it: “Sadler’s Wells have curated a first-rate selection of dance, all performed on a beautiful lakeside stage, the highlight of which was ¡Vamos Cuba!, a whirlwind of salsa and jazz that bristled with colour and energy”
If you couldn’t make Latitude this weekend do not worry for a moment, because Vamos Cuba! is at Sadler’s Wells all summer bringing the Havana heat to London; opening on July 26 – August 21. You can buy your tickets here.
