Always Remember, the definitive new musical about the Cuban-American experience, premieres on Thanksgiving weekend, 2022 at the South Miami Dade Cultural Arts Center! 

In development for over two decades, this epic full-scale work by Marilyn Morales, a Cuban-born American, follows a family’s struggle to leave Castro’s Cuba – and reunite after being separated by forces beyond their control. 

Entertaining, uplifting and enlightening, this great musical speaks to the ageless plight of all refugees. With an intriguing narrative, rich musical score and bold dialogue – delivered by world-class performers – Always Remember has something for everyone!

“A new musical that promises to be a hit…”

Gloria Burns, Miami’s Community Newspapers

“Snapshots from the Cuban Diaspora – An Odyssey in Images” is a series of lectures and exhibitions. 

This endeavor is in honor of the generation of refugees fleeing Cuba at the onset of the Castro revolution as well as the families that came after. The underlying theme of this event series is to communicate the trajectory of the assimilation of refugees from their homeland into their adopted country. The title of this series was originally inspired by the concept behind “Always Remember” the new original musical by Marilyn Morales. This project emerged over the course of many years of preparation of images and selecting process for Ms. Morales’ musical.
