Undeniably the most impactful and culturally-relevant theatrical experience to hit South Florida in decades, Abre Camino Collective, Broadway Factor, and The Real HAVANA CLUB are extremely honored to announce the extension of the groundbreaking immersive theater production, The AMPARO™Experience. Prompted by the demands of the community, the additional 72 performances kick off on August 1 and run through September 29, offering two shows per night, Thursdays through Sundays.
Last week, The AMPARO™ Experience hit its 100th performance milestone sharing this beautiful story of love, loss and redemption with over 10,000 theater goers. Thispreviously sold-out show has garnered exceptionally rave reviews by many of Miami’s most-prominent leaders. It was a natural next step to present an extension of The AMPARO™ Experience inviting another 10,000 guests to step into revolutionary Cuba and experience this moving journey for themselves.
“We are humbled to be able to extend this incredibly moving experience,” said Vanessa Garcia, Playwright of The AMPARO™ Experience. “Miami is home to millions of immigrants with a story just like this one and we felt a responsibility to the community to share this story for as long as we can.”
AMPARO™ is an immersive theater experience that transports theatergoers from present-day Miami to 1957 Cuba, where they follow cast members through the Cuban Revolution and bear witness to the struggles and triumphs of the Arechabala family – founders of The Real HAVANA CLUB rum. Audiences are guided through the show on one of five tracks, where they experience this compelling, real-life story from multiple perspectives.
From rave theater critic reviews to notable mentions by top tier entertainment journalists, news media, spirits publications, and a variety of influencers and celebrities, AMPARO™ continues to receive critical acclaim as “Miami’s hottest ticket” (People en Español)
“If you have a chance, be a part of this singular experience [The AMPARO™ Experience] before it’s gone!” – Gloria Estefan, Cuban-American singer, songwriter, and businesswoman
“A MUST SEE playing in Miami. It will leave you mesmerized!” – Richard Blanco, Cuban-American Poet
“The not-to-be missed Amparo Experience is great for its message, it’s immersive theatrical magic, it’s powerful evocative power, it’s flawless cast, but it becomes pitch perfect when the one and only Roberto Torres emerges as singing Caballo Viejo and immediately transports to where you need to be to fully appreciate it.” – Alberto Carvalho, Superintendent of Miami-Dade County Public Schools
“Powerful and emotional! If you’re in Miami you need to check it out – oh and did I mention that they serve rum cocktails?” – Ana Navarro, CNN Political Commentator and Co-Host of THE VIEW
Each performance includes a pre-show cocktail hour with drinks designed with both historical context and to showcase The Real HAVANA CLUB in all its best forms. Immediately following the cocktail hour, audiences embark on the 90-minute journey with over 23 actors and musicians, as well as cocktail tastings throughout the performance.
