At a press conference, Repilado said that in the stage, premiered 14 years ago, live music by Compay Segundo Group will be performed as well as episodes lived by the Cuban musician.
"The play is a love story written in straightforward language," said Repilado, son of Maximo Francisco Repilado Muñoz, internationally known as Compay Segundo.
Actors Blanca Rosa Blanco, Mayra Mazorra, Lieter Ledesma and Ricardo Amaray, among others, are part of the cast of the play that will pay tribute to Compay Segundo, who won worldwide fame with the Buena Vista Social Club.
Directed by Ulises Salazar, "Se seco el arroyito" is back to the stage, this time with new technologies and according to the leading actors it is a genuine defense of the cultural traditions of Cuba.
Born on November 18, 1907, Compay Segundo made important contributions to music, for example the "armonico," instrument made from seven strings, merging the Spanish guitar and the Cuban tres. / PL.
