Entertaining, Great singing, Great dancing, Great staging, Great music

See it if You like Latin music. You like great staging, costumes, singing and dancing. You want to smile, lalugh and be entertained.

Don't see it if You need a serious story line. You don't like puppets. You don't want to laugh and have some fun. You don't like mystical fantasy plays. Read more

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)

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.”
