Aurora Theatre will heat things up this February with Club Babalú and special guest Michael “Michelito” Herrera, founding member of the legendary Cuban group Yoruba Andabo! A native of Havana, Herrera will join Frankie Quiñones and the Atlanta Salsa All-Stars to explore the distinct rhythm of Rumba from its Afro-Cuban roots through today. Guests will experience an immersive musical journey into the deep folkloric Cuban origins of Havana – better known as La Habana – and don the dancing shoes for a caliente Cuban dance party during the second half of the night!

Continuing in February…
A Doll’s House, Part 2
January 10 – February 10
Tuesday – Saturday at 8 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
Tickets from $20
Based on the characters of the Henrik Ibsen classic play, this follow-up story imagines what would happen if Nora Helmer returned home, 15 years after she slams the door on her husband and family. Audiences don’t need to be familiar with the original story to enjoy this “Part 2,” as playwright Lucas Hnath juxtaposes contemporary and classic sensibilities to create a thought-provoking and sharp-witted comedy.
