Jorge Enrique Caballero is one of the great actors of Cuba in a system that doesn’t make stars of Afro - Cuban performers often enough. Jorge is an audacious, edgy, explosive performer and writer of three plays based on historic Cuban figures and events. He arrives in NYC on April 1st. — just as his character did in the 1920’s — for the very first time.
