The Prince of Old Havana. Set in Havana at the turn of the 20th century, this is the true story of Alberto Yarini, the son of European aristocrats who could have had his pick of any number of respectable careers - but where he felt most at home was among the disenfranchised, the Afro-Cubanos and prostitutes to whom he offered a safe haven and home. He became known as "The Great Pimp of San Isidro" and "The Prince of Old Havana", crossing all social and cultural barriers, friends with dignitaries and politicians as well as the city's poor. He was a man of the people and one of the city's biggest power brokers. Part Bertolt Brecht's MacHeath, part Don Juan...and part Shakespeare's Prince Hal. Yarini inhabits a distinct world where European social mores and customs intermingle with African rhythms and rituals. Havana's last hurrah.
