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

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, 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.

November 22nd, 2015
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.”
