Robert Nederlander, Nederlander Worldwide Entertainment manager on Broadway, USA, said that collaboration is the key to premiere in Cuba of the musical Rent, managed by the National Council for the Performing Arts (NCEA).
At a press conference at the Piano Bar Delirio Habanero, the specialist said it is an honor to present in Havana for the first time, one of the most famous shows in their midst.
He stressed that occurs after the announcement of the restoration of diplomatic relations between his country and the island and if that piece presentations contribute to the deepening bilateral cultural exchanges, prove a blessing for both parties.
Nederlander brought to the capital in 2011, to great acclaim from critics and audiences the ambassadors Broadway show with the most outstanding artists at the time.
Andy Lord Jr, artistic director Rent in his Cuban version spoken in Spanish and Creole interpreters and was first released on December 24, as originally envisioned author Jonathan Larson, said he feels great inner peace by bringing Cuba, the birthplace of his parents land, this work.
He noted that personally feel you can leave a legacy, help revive musical theater on the island and more than teaching here has received lessons in humanity, passion and dedication to art without there being financial interest, as may be perceived in the 22 actors and other Cuban collaborators who work hard and intensely with him.
Gisela Gonzalez, president of the NCEA, praised the humility and surrender manifested at all times by the 10 senior executives Broadway, who freely convey their experiences with their Cuban colleagues and warmly congratulated.
Rent will premiere 24, by invitation, and then will be staged from Friday to Sunday until March 2015. In the capital Tito Junco Hall Cultural Center Bertolt Brecht.
