Presented by Robert Nederlander Jr., Stanley Browne and Nederlander Worldwide Events, performances will also be held Nov. 4-5 at the Grand Theatre of Havana.

Directed by Rob Evan (Jekyll & Hyde, Les Misérables, Tarzan), Broadway Ambassadors will feature performances from Evan, Luba Mason (Chicago, The Will Rogers Follies, How to Succeed…), Capathia Jenkins (Caroline or Change, The Look of Love) and Norm Lewis (The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess, The Little Mermaid, Side Show). Jeremy Roberts is the musical director.

In addition, the artists from the production will conduct several workshops and master classes for students of ISA, the state run performing arts institute.

"I'm very proud to be involved in this cultural exchange with Cuba, and to have the unique privilege to present the very best of the American art form that is Broadway and musical theatre to its people," Nederlander said in a statement.

Sponsored by the Cuban National Council for the Performing Arts, The Havana Theatre Festival brings together an international array of cutting-edge performance companies for seven days of theatre workshops, performances and panel discussions. The festival's mission is to participate in the needs of Cuba's culture by promoting theatre as an art "that continues to defend the possibility of human exchange."
