Atlantic Theater Company will present a one-week extension for the world premiere of Buena Vista Social ClubTM.


Buena Vista Social ClubTM begins performances tonight, Friday, November 17th, ahead of an official opening night of Wednesday, December 13th at the Linda Gross Theater (330 West 20th Street). Originally scheduled to run through December 31st, the production will now run through Sunday, January 7, 2024.


Inspired by true events, the new musical Buena Vista Social ClubTM brings the iconic Grammy-winning album of pulsing Afro-Cuban music thrillingly to the stage.


In 1950s Havana, a group of young musicians creates a sound that shakes the world of Cuban music – until the revolution changes everything. Forty years later, the band is brought back together to record the songs they left behind. With decades of heartbreak fueling every note, they unexpectedly go on to create the greatest-selling world music album of all time, immortalizing their songs and their legacy.


With a book by Marco Ramirez (The Royale), director Saheem Ali (Tony Award nominee, Fat Ham) leads an ensemble of visionary performing artists, including a band of renowned musicians from across the globe and a music team lead by David Yazbek (Tony Award winner, The Band’s Visit), and choreographed by Patricia Delgado (Spielberg’s West Side Story) and Justin Peck (Tony winner, Carousel). Buena Vista Social ClubTM is an homage to the artists of yesterday – the ones who survived upheaval and oppression to make the music they loved.


The international cast of Buena Vista Social ClubTM features Skizzo Arnedillo (Best Original Choreography Nominee Off-Broadway, A Class Act), Renesito Avich (Latin Grammy nominee), Natalie Venetia Belcon (Matilda), Angélica Beliard (Summer), Kenya Browne (Off-Broadway debut), Danaya Esperanza(Comedy of Errors), Carlos Falú (Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story), Francisco J.
