THE BRIDGE OF SAN LUIS REY

Oct 24 - Nov 17

Miami New Drama opens its season at the Colony Theatre with The Bridge of San Luis Rey, a new play based on the Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Thornton Wilder that Time Magazine calls “One of the Best novels of the 20th century.” Adapted for the stage by and starring six-time Obie Award-winner David Greenspan, The Bridge of San Luis Rey is a lyrical fable of fate and love about five travelers in colonial Peru whose lives intersect in an epic and unexpected way.

THE CUBANS

Jan 23 - Feb 16

WORLD PREMIERE

 

Our mission of developing and presenting new work by Miami artists continues with the debut of the first play by Cuban-American playwright and actor Michael Leon. The Cubans turns the classic American family drama into a quintessential Miami story – a poignant, humorous exploration of the fraught generational dynamics and struggle for identity in a Cuban-American family. When Christy returns to Miami for a family celebration, she clashes with her overbearing mother Martica over her life choices and family expectations - until a life-shattering event forces them to confront their relationship. Directed by Victoria Collado, director of the immersive hit The Amparo Experience.

A WONDERFUL WORLD

Mar 5 - Apr 5

WORLD PREMIERE

 

A world-premiere musical about jazz legend and singular American icon Louis Armstrong, featuring songs recorded and made popular by Armstrong, and original book by Aurin Squire, the multi-talented Opalocka-raised playwright and TV writer (This is Us, The Good Fight), and co-author of last season’s hit Confessions of a Cocaine Cowboy. A Wonderful World, traces Armstrong’s odyssey, the musical genre he helped define, and the complex history of race in America, from the birth of jazz in Armstrong’s native New Orleans to international stardom and the Civil Rights era. Squire focuses his musical drama through the prism of the women in Armstrong’s life. Directed by Drama Desk winner and Tony nominee Christopher Renshaw. Music arranged by Annastasia Victory and Michael O. Mitchell.

THE GREAT LEAP

Apr 23 - May 17

The Great Leap is acclaimed Bay Area playwright Lauren Yee’s comedic drama about a swaggering American basketball coach who brings his university team to Beijing for a 1989 exhibition game against a Chinese former protégé determined to prove himself. Their competition is upended by an ambitious Chinese-American high school star and the tragedy of the Tiananmen Square protests. Yee’s story of political conflict, and the intricate, fractured links that immigration forges across cultures and generations, is moving and deeply relevant. The Great Leap is a co-production with Sarasota’s Asolo Repertory Theatre, part of an ongoing partnership with one of the leading theaters in the Southeast.
