"Cuba: Punto X" opens in NYC

Melu Communications Group and Latin Jazz USA Productions in association with OLLANTAY Center for the Arts proudly present the world premiere of the play "Cuba: Punto X" written and directed by renowned theatre and film professional Ivan Acosta. The play opens on Thursday, September 20, 2012 at 8:00 PM at The Producers' Club located at 358 West 44th Street in NYC for a two-week engagement. There will be a reception following the opening night performance where those in attendance will have the opportunity to mingle with the show's stars and director.

About the Play
The play takes place in 2020. And the dictatorship of the Castro brothers is over. According to expert analysts, through the years the military communist regime in Cuba, created several secret spots that were extracted from the geography of the Cuban archipelago. One such site is the point X, somewhere near the Turquinoremote, in the east. At that point X, is in hiding, the former commander Eulalio and his assistant and lover, Yari. Both have spent several years in hiding, waiting to be rescued and smuggled out of the island. Commander Eulalio was notable for its abuses and violation of human rights of many citizens. Dozens of researchers supported by the International Commission for Human Rights, relentlessly pursue the fugitives, who are former members of the military apparatus, which distinguished themselves by their abuses and violations.

CUBA: POINT X, through its three characters, "Commander Eulalio", semi kidnapped girlfriend, "Yari", and the researcher, "Adrian", poses in fiction, a look of a future hypothetical situation in Cuba.

The play stars Alfonso Rey, Dalia Davi, and Lucio Fernandez. It is written and directed by Ivan Acosta; assistant director, Alexander Diaz; choreography by Alberto Morgan; production design by Jesus Rivera; original music by Alfredo Triff; sound design by Frank Rodriguez; and produced by Melu Communications Group and Latin Jazz USA Productions in association with OLLANTAY Center for the Arts. It is presented entirely in Spanish with English subtitles.
