Overrated, Excruciating, Tedious, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if nostalgic for pre-Castro Havana or Old San Juan, enjoy Latin music regardless of performance quality and understand Spanish or don't care

Don't see it if your are offended by Hispanic stereotypes, dislike primarily Cuban music or prefer interesting plots in English or subtitles (none here)

Entertaining, Funny, Great music, Quirky, Fun

See it if you're Latino and/or love the Buena Vista Social Club-era of Latin music & performers; well-performed in a somewhat silly narrative setup.

Don't see it if you're expecting a straight concert or cabaret, don't like puppets or things bilingual; no Spanish ok, but you'll miss much humor & flavor. Read more

Enchanting, Great singing, Great staging, Hilarious, Masterful

See it if You would like to go to the greatest Latin nightclub ever starring Celia Cruz

Don't see it if You failed High School Spanish. A modicum is required for a full appreciation.

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Great singing

See it if You want to hear music from three great singers (Myrta, Daniel & Celia) of days gone by fantastic singers in a mythical cabaret club.

Don't see it if You don't like music of days gone by or you don't like shows that are bilingual.

Delightful

See it if you enjoy Latin American popular music from the 1950s.Showcasing three veteran singers of the glory days;Silva, Santos, and Celia Cruz.

Don't see it if you prefer something more dramatic or intense. Read more

Entertaining, Great singing, Good dancing, Fluffy

See it if you like Latin music, dancing, puppetry, and rather cheesy/family friendly musicals. Helpful if you know Spanish, but you can get by without

Don't see it if you don't like Latin music, dancing, or puppetry.

82
Entertaining, Great singing, Refreshing, Must see, Funny

See it if you want an enjoyable Caribbean getaway on the LES even if you are not fluent in Spanish

Don't see it if you have no interest in the music of famous singers set in a heavenly Latin cabaret

For a previous production

"Sequins abound, as one might expect from any self-respecting Latin Cabaret. There are only so many situations in which it’s hard to have too much sparkle, and 'La Gloria' takes full advantage of being one of those situations, with costume and set design (also by Calero). A nightclub in the clouds is silver, blue, feathered, ruffles, white tuxedos and sparkle...This bilingual production is jubilant, and no less so for an English-speaking audience.”
