Cuba: the Accidental Eden

Cuba the accidental eden

By David Johanssen

Cuba has been restricted economically for the past 50 years, but its relative isolation has left its island wildlife untouched. While much of the Caribbean has poisoned its ecological riches in pursuit of tourism and development, Cuba has remained a safe haven for rare and fascinating indigenous animals.

New York director Sherry Asch presents a reading by local actors of this award-winning play about love, anti-Semitism, and the vagaries of the art world by Donald Margulies. According to The New York Times, “You can tell when a play has gripped its audience, for no one seems to breathe … a smart, sad comedy ….” 50 pesos
