    LA GLORIA (The Glory): A Latin Cabaret Returns to Teatro SEA

    Celia Cruz, Myrta Silva and Daniel Santos come back to life at Teatro SEA in our awarded musical revue: LA GLORIA (THE GLORY): A Latin Cabaret, a musical revue that honors the late legendary superstars of Latin Cabaret from the Caribbean.

    The Glory: A Latin Cabaret, has been awarded 3 ATI, 6 ACE and 4 HOLA Awards as Best Production of Musical Theatre in 2016; including Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Choreography. This musical transports audiences to a heavenly realm where Myrta Silva and Daniel Santos are the stars of a nightclub emceed by Archangel Camacho. One night, Celia Cruz arrives and wants to share the stage with them, which kick-starts this humorous drama; however, it turns into a memorable night as they sing their greatest hits. A live orchestra, singers, puppets, and a little celestial magic, make this show a hit in heaven.
