Mire la cumparsita. Fue extraordinaria. I went and watched a one act play. It was awesome and La cumparsita music was awesome. Great actors, music, and beautiful building that is one of the only old but well kept buildings in the city.

There are several plays scheduled throughout the year. However, you can also take a guided tour through the gorgeous building. The theatre is also within a walking distance from some really good restaurants, museums and other attractions.
