One of the strengths of the Cuban Heritage Collection is its holdings of the papers of theater artists in Cuba and the diaspora, principally the papers of playwrights, designers, performers, directors, and theater companies. Included here are items digitized from these collections, primarily photographs, playbills, and costume and set designs.

Materials have been digitized in partnership with the Cuban Theater Digital Archive and with the generous support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, The Goizueta Foundation, and the Knight Foundation. Visit our Grants History page for more information.
