Ybor City at Rustik Tavern
"Ybor City" is an experience! The original musical, with book by Anita Gonzalez and music and lyrics by Dan Furman, will be performed by a cast of 11 at Rustik Tavern in Brooklyn.
The musical is set in the town of Tampa Florida in 1918. When Rafael comes to town to read newspapers for the factory workers, he falls for Teresa, the sister of union organizer Catalino. Romance blossoms, tensions rise, and when Catalino stands up for worker rights, violence erupts. The community struggles to unite against an abusive factory owner and collectively form a multi-racial union.
Director Vernice Miller and Movement Director Stefanie Batten Bland have created a sensuous and exciting mix of music, dance and politics that will take over the space at Rustik Tavern in Brooklyn for 5 nights in February.
Eating (and drinking) during the performance is ENCOURAGED! Rustik Tavern has a delightful and affordable Caribbean influenced menu:
including salads, burgers, lamb chops, seafood and Fried Chicken and Mac-n-Cheese!
