Atlantic Theater Company has announced an additional extension for the world premiere of Buena Vista Social Club due to high demand. Plus, check out all new photos below!

Buena Vista Social Club began performances on Friday, November 17th, ahead of an official opening night of Wednesday, December 13th at the Linda Gross Theater (330 West 20th Street). Initially extended to run through January 7, 2024, the production will now run through Sunday, January 21st, 2024.

Inspired by true events, the new musical Buena Vista Social Club 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 Club is an homage to the artists of yesterday – the ones who survived upheaval and oppression to make the music they loved.
