The immersive theater production Las Lloronas, (or, the mourners), is the story of a fictional Cuban family whose funeral home business is stripped away from them in communist-led Cuba and re-established in Miami. Their journey is also the story of the lloronas, the professional mourners hired by the funeral home to cry alongside the casket.
The story takes a dark turn when one of the hired mourners takes her business in a more sinister direction. The tale of this peculiar but noble Cuban tradition portrays strong family values, crime, corruption, and perseverance.
The production is played out in Spanish with some Miami Spanglish mixed in. A complimentary cocktail hour with drinks and appetizers provided by El Sembrador and CAO Bakery begins an hour before the show and Oliva Cigars will provide a pre-show smoke. Attendees will receive a second Oliva cigar during the post-show reception with complimentary cocktails.
The event takes place March 17 starting at 8 p.m. at the Westchester Cultural Center, 7930 SW 40th Street in Miami.
