Culture and romance collide in Havana! 

Inspired by events in the life of Mary McCarthy Comez Cueto, Newfoundland Mary celebrates the unique life of a remarkable Canadian who spent her life in exile in her adopted homeland of Cuba. Mary's world is forever changed when she meets Luis Gonzalez, who dreams of singing like Frank Sinatra. The new musical follows the evolving relationship between two people from very different worlds as they discover the importance of music in surviving life's challenges, the value of friendship during times of uncertainty, and the possibility of love at a mature age.
