Our Man in Havana

When a bumbling vacuum cleaner salesman is recruited to be a spy, he just can’t say no. The only problem is he doesn’t know anything—until he starts making-up informants! This lively, tongue-in-cheek adaptation of the classic thriller conjures 1950s Cuba onstage, as four actors change accents and costumes to play over 30 eclectic characters.
