Havana, just to give one example, offers shows for the most different tastes, from the classical theater frequently represented by the Hubert de Blanck company, to the experimental and avant-garde theater of Teatro el Público or Argos Teatro. The contextualizations of foreign works that adapt to the Cuban reality are frequent, although there have been and continue to emerge Cuban playwrights whose creations are not only premiered in theaters throughout the island, but have also been transferred to the cinema, such as, the film by Lester Hamalet, Old House, inspired by the classic Cuban theater play La casa vieja by the playwright Abelardo Estorino; or The broken gods by Ernesto Daranas, based on the play by Carlos Felipe Hernández, Requiem by Yarini.

“The príncipe jardinero y fingido Cloridano, of Santiago de Pita y Borroto”, edited between 1730 and 1733 in Sevilla, is considered the first Cuban theatrical play. Between the main Theatrical Cuban Collectives founded after 1959 we can mention the Escambray Theater Group, Estudio Theater, The Rita Montaner Company and some other contemporary groups recognized inside and outside the country, like the El Público Theatre Group and Argos Theatre.
