Cuban Cast of RENT Makes History, Attends KINKY BOOTS on Broadway

The Cuban cast of RENT has made history, yet again.

Directed by Andy Senor, Jr, the production was not only the first first musical to be performed in the country in 50 years - but now, the cast has attended their first Broadway musical, thanks to the lifting of the travel and trade embargo with the country.

The company recently traveled to New York, where they attended the Tony-winning musical Kinky Boots, Harvey Fierstein confirmed on Twitter.

Fierstein tweeted: "The Cuban cast of RENT saw @KinkyBootsBway 2nite. It's the 1st B'way musical they've ever seen. Thank you, President OBAMA! Sanity at last."

RENT was part of Nederlander Worldwide Entertainment's ongoing mission to bring Broadway musical theatre to new and emerging markets around the globe.

The Spanish translation of the musical opened on Christmas Eve at Havana's Bertolt Brecht Theatre to dignitaries and theater people invited by the Cuban National Council of Performing Arts and to the general public on Friday, December 26, 2014.

KINKY BOOTS, winner of six Tony Awards including Best Musical, opened on Broadway at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on April 4, 2013. The show tells the story of Charlie Price, who has suddenly inherited his father's shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father's legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola (Billy Porter). A fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos, Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man he's meant to be. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible... and discovers that when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world.

Inspired by a true story and based on the Miramax motion picture written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth, Kinky Bootsfeatures a warm and witty book by four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage, Torch Song Trilogy, Newsies) and a richly diverse musical score from Grammy Award-winning rock icon Cyndi Lauper, in her stunning theatrical debut. The production is directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Hairspray, La Cage, Broadway Bares), with music supervision, arrangements and orchestrations by Stephen Oremus (Book of Mormon, Wicked).
