Production Description
I Like It Like That – A Musical brings us back to an era when Salsa was the religion of the masses, when singers and bands became the community’s heroes and idols, and when rhythm and lyrics provided an alternative education to generations of New Yorkers. I Like It Like That – A Musical remembers and celebrates a yesteryear proclaiming a new and hopeful era, with an accent! “They were the best of times; they were the worst of times,” wrote Charles Dickens. The story centers on Don Roberto Rodríguez, who instills good values in his children, and faces the true grit and social chaos of the times. He works hard to hold his family together, and all the while music and imagination keeps their soul afloat!
