From the Director of Lady Salsa and The Bar at Buena Vista.

Return to the golden age of Havana in the 1950s for a marvellous night of music, stories and dance in the company of one of the giants of literature of the twentieth century.

The stage is transformed to the elegant Floridita Bar, the favourite haunt of Ernest Hemingway, managed by Constante, the legendary barman, and Ernest’s dear friend, mixing the finest Mojitos and Cuba Libres on this enchanting musical island.

Meet Ernest Hemingway, performed by Canadian actor Brian Gordon Sinclair as he recounts incredible stories of his life and love for Cuba. With a Daiquiri in his hand, Ernest is excellent company, with his stories of lion taming, bull fighting, Marlin fishing, his writing, his loves, and the reasons for his tragic end. Musicians and dancers recreate the fabulous nightlife of Havana in the fifties, the era of the Rumba, the Mambo and the Cha Cha Cha.
