La Colmenita – The National Children’s Theater of Cuba


In a rare US appearance, La Colmenita, an internationally acclaimed Cuban children’s theater group and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, will perform in New York City.

The US tour will introduce some of Cuba’s most talented children to an American audience that has, in spite of the decades-long U.S. embargo, enthusiastically embraced Cuban culture. It is their hope that their productions will build greater understanding between two countries whose people have been divided by politics for too long.
