This New Immersive Play Explores The History of a Legendary Liquor Company

Of course there are plenty of cocktails on hand, too.

Drinks and a show just got an upgrade with the debut of immersive theatrical experience called Amparo. Now showing every Thursday to Sunday through September 29 in a private villa in Downtown Miami (221 NE 17th Street) it tells the story of the Arechabala family­, the founders of The Real Havana Club rum, all paired with a series of rum cocktails.

Akin to other immersive play experiences, like New York City’s Sleep No More, theatergoers are encouraged to chose-their-own-journey through different routes based on the experience they want to have like one inspired by ‘nostalgia’ or another inspired by ‘justice.’ The play itself centers around the history behind Havana Club rum set in 1957 Cuba and follows cast members through the Cuban Revolution and its impact on them and their company.

Since the show is focused on an alcoholic beverage, there are plenty of cocktails to try as well during the two-hour play. On hand to sip are the Hemingway-approved Guayabita Daiquiri; the Havana Especial made with pineapple and rum; the Havana Cafe combing cold brew and sweet vermouth; the Clásico 1934, a modern take on a Manhattan; and the The Airmail, a Caribbean version of a champagne cocktail.

Tickets are on sale for Amparo at $79 per person and are available here.
