El Guindi's Back of the Throat is an unflinching and Strangelovian look at the post-9/11 stripping of Americans' rights in the name of security. Khaled, an Arab-American writer, finds himself the target of a "casual" inquiry by two government agents. But as rumors swirl and grudges are exposed, the darkness behind such governmental euphemisms as "person of interest" and "extraordinary rendition" is revealed. Far from being preachy, El Guindi's play asks the simple question: when they come for you, who will be your voice? Starring Rayner Garranchan, Jim Gibbons, Tim Gore, Faiza Cherie, and Freddy Valle.
For seven years Emma and Jerry engage in a passionate love affair, deceiving their spouses, each other and, at times, even themselves. One of the 20th century's most influential dramatists, Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter, innovatively explores the complexities of love, guilt and duplicity.
Betrayal originally premiered at London's National Theatre in 1978 and was immediately hailed as one of Pinter's masterworks, winning the 1979 Olivier Award for Best New Play and becoming an instant classic. Never before seen in Miami, the play closes Zoetic Stage's fifth season at the Arsht Center.
Imagine a divided Congress. Imagine lawmakers more interested in lining their own pockets than serving the national interest. Imagine an idealistic young Congressman determined to expose the corruption by introducing a bill so stuffed with pork it is sure to oink itself to death. Will his fight cost him the support of his peers, his constituents, and the woman he loves — who just happens to be the daughter of the Appropriations Committee chairman? A comic masterpiece that could have been pulled straight from today's headlines, this marvelous political satire is as relevant today as when it won the Pulitzer Prize in 1933. Colorful characters, sharp wit and glorious wisecracks reminiscent of 1930s screwball comedies add to the fun and fury.
Six BRAND NEW humorous short plays chosen to appeal to audiences of all ages, highlighting actors and characters over 50 as viable, fully involved, full of life individuals.
Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where this month's paycheck barely covers last month's bills, bingo is a night on the town, and sharp-tongued single-mom Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Faced with the reality that her neighborhood is providing her with the same opportunities it always has — none — Margie concocts a plan to solve all her financial problems — and it might just be crazy enough to work. This humor-filled, Tony-nominated hit from Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire takes a look at the "haves" and the "have-nots" as it questions the American dream and how to achieve it — hard work, skill, or luck?
From the producers of the stage hit, "The Screwtape Letters" comes the highly anticipated theatrical adaptation of C.S. Lewis' The Great Divorce. In this dantesque celestial journey from Hell to Paradise, Lewis draws some of the most fiercely funny characters he ever created. This is C. S. Lewis at his imaginative best!
Performance includes after-show talkback about the play with Max McLean.
A delightful commentary on late 19th century British social behavior, spiced up by Wilde's wry wit.
It Only Takes A Moment is a brand new show that uses the rich and glorious music of Broadway legend Jerry Herman to tell the kaleidoscopic story of a woman looking back at her tumultuous life. By journeying into her memories, she reconciles with her past and recaptures the exhilaration and joy she once found in her family, her music – and in herself.
Following the smash hit, Death and Harry Houdini, third generation magician Dennis Watkins reappears in The Magnificents This original story by Watkins features an extraordinary family that brings magical entertainment to adoring audiences. As their glory and popularity begin to fade, the aging star of the show takes a young boy under his wing and teaches him all his tricks – and much more. This touching story of the legacy we can leave before we let go is told in spectacular style, with aerial circus arts, film components and stunning feats of magic – including Watkins vanishing before the audience's very eyes!
With his eye firmly fixed on the bottom line, wealthy hat merchant Horace Vendergelder can't see the value of love, even as he searches for a wife. But he gets more than he bargains for when he employs the services of matchmaker Mrs. Dolly Levi. Mistaken identities, near misses and a wild romp through late 19th Century New York City flow through this madcap comic adventure like vintage champagne. The uproarious comedy that inspired the Broadway musical, Hello, Dolly!, Thornton Wilder's The Matchmaker proves that sometimes money can buy happiness.
If this play were a personal ad, it might read: Rich American women seeking financially strapped British men with titles. A hot topic (i.e. Downton Abbey) on both sides of the pond when this delightfully cheeky play was written in 1917, the exchange of a "milady" for a large financial sum was all the rage. Bessie Saunders, 22, pretty and the heiress to several million dollars, has come from America to stay with her sister Pearl, aka Lady Grayston. Pearl's friends include a cougar Duchess, a widowed Princess and two fellows both besotted with Bessie. But once Bessie witnesses the scandalous habits of this less-than-virtuous society, the emotional cost of social climbing is revealed in this sexy, stylish and wildly witty look at Europe's posh set and the Americans who crashed the party.
Winner of five Tony Awards, Rick Elice's Peter and the Starcatcher is the innovative and imaginative play with music based on the best-selling novel by Miami native Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. In this high-flying adventure, twelve actors play more than 100 unforgettable characters – plus most of the scenery and furniture – in an exhilarating journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up? This epic origin story proves that one's own imagination is the most captivating place in the world!
In this exquisite, dreamlike sonata of a play, Greenfield Prize and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Nilo Cruz (Anna in the Tropics) examines the resiliency of true love and the indelible power of memories. German-born novelist Bemadette Kahn lost the love of her life during World War II when he fled Nazi Germany on the S.S. St. Louis, a ship carrying 937 Jewish refugees seeking haven in North America. Both Cuba and the U.S. turned the ship away, leaving many of the passengers to return to Europe and perish in Nazi Concentration Camps. Bemadette's past resurfaces when a young Jewish-Cuban writer contacts her to research the ship's tragic voyage, which also claimed the life of his great aunt. As their relationship deepens, they are enveloped by a transcendent romance based on her memories of her great lost love.
From the hauntingly beautiful first three notes of "Bali Ha'i" to the exquisite "Some Enchanted Evening," this Rodgers and Hammerstein classic contains some of the most glorious music ever written. The winner of 10 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, South Pacific tells the sweeping romantic story of two couples — US Navy nurse Nellie Forbush and expatriate French plantation owner Emile de Becque, and Navy Airman Joe Cable and young local girl Liat — and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and their own prejudices. Helmed by the same director as Show Boat, we're ecstatic to bring you the grandeur and intimacy of South Pacific in a fresh new production featuring all-new orchestrations arranged especially for Asolo Rep.
