From bungled assassination plots to the Bay of Pigs invasion to underground hip-hop provocateurs, our country’s efforts to undermine Cuba’s government have come dangerously close to satire. Thus, Our Man in Havana, the comedy about a vacuum-cleaner salesman recruited to be a spy in ’50s Cuba, isn’t that far from reality. Portland Stage’s production of Clive Francis’ play, based on the Graham Greene novel, opened last month and continues through today’s 2 p.m. performance. Tix: $47. 774-0465. portlandstage.org.
