Celia Cruz's Music Comes Alive (Again) at the Arsht Center
It's fitting that we should continue to honor her long after she passed away, and that's exactly what Celia: La Vida Y La Música De Celia Cruz strives to do. The musical, which played in Miami a year ago before touring internationally, has returned to the Adrienne Arscht Center from June 2 through 21. Starring Anissa Gathers and Seidy Carrera as Cruz in different eras of her life, and Pedro Telemaco as her husband Pedro Knight, the musical brings hits form La Guarachera's catalogue to life onstage with the help of musical director, Isidro Infante, a long time friend and collaborator of Celia's.
Celia: La Vida Y La Música De Celia Cruz plays at the John S. And James L. Knight Concert Hall in the Adrienne Arsht Center (1300 Biscayne Blvd) from June 2-21. Tickets range $60 - $125.
