Welcome to Always Remember -  official website



The world premiere of

ALWAYS REMEMBER

Spring 2022!

Date T.B.A. 

The story, which centers around the plight of a family of Cubans, separated by forces beyond their control, is a love letter to all people who have sought liberty. The original music, dialogue, images and dance combine to make a thrilling live experience that will be enjoyed by audiences for generations to come!

Our hearts go out to the Cuban people!      This is the moment!

 

Try to put yourselves in their worn-out shoes.    Why would you protest in the street,  unarmed in front of a military presence that could kill you at any moment?

 

How could you be so desperate that you do not care what happens to you?

 

This is about the 11 million people who have next to nothing in the way of food, water, electricity, proper health care or basic freedoms. And, this is about change that must take place so that, after six decades of tyranny and oppression, Cuba may be free!

 

We support the people of Cuba in their fight for freedom and can only hope that change is around the corner!                    SOS Cuba                  ¡Viva Cuba Libre!

 

 

¡Nuestros corazones están con todos los cubanos!    ¡Éste es el momento!

 

Traten de ponerse en el lugar de ellos.    ¿Por qué protestar sin armas en la calle en frente de los militares que en cualquier momento podría matarte?

 

¿Que desesperación sientes que no te importa lo que te hagan?

 

Se trata de los 11 millones de personas que casi no tienen nada de alimentos, agua, electricidad, atención médica adecuada o libertad. Se trata de un cambio que debe producirse para que, después de seis décadas de tiranía y opresión, Cuba sea libre!

 

¡Apoyamos al pueblo de Cuba en su lucha por la libertad y solo podemos esperar que el cambio esté muy cerca!       SOS Cuba        ¡Viva Cuba Libre!

A message from the creator of Always Remember

From Marilyn Morales, the creator of Always Remember I lived this. My beloved family, much like the Santos family in Always Remember, left Cuba with nothing more than the clothes…
