Puerto Rico Fua was a lot of fun! The vaudvillian musical (somewhat like a modern day zarzuela) had good music and a high-energy cast. The production also provided a suprisingly educational presentation of Puerto Rican history through non-rose-colored glasses that successfully balanced the sometimes harsh history with humor. If you are interested in the Enchanted Island, Puerto Rican culture, like salsa music, or musicals, Puerto Rico Fua will make for a nice evening on the town.
In Spanish with English Surtitles
By Carlos Ferrari
Directed by Luis Caballero
A hilarious and satirical take on the most notorious times in history of the island and the development of today’s “Boricua,” this musical was an instant hit in Puerto Rico when it first opened. Ferrari, an established and frequently produced playwright in Puerto Rico and co-founder of the distinguished Nuevo Teatro Group, spins tales of the Taíno natives, the many invaders from the Conquistadores to the USA, and the ups and downs of contemporary life in the enchanted island.
