TO WRITE MIAMI : A Reading With Les Standiford

Wednesday, Jul 31, 2019 from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM - English

Les Standiford is Founding Director of the Creative Writing Program at Florida International University in Miami and the author of twenty-two books, including a series of thrillers starring hard-luck South Florida building contractor John Deal.

In Presidential Deal (1998), the First Lady, based loosely on Hillary Clinton, is kidnapped in Miami. (Don't worry folks, it was all made up.)

He has also written works of history, including Last Train to Paradise: Henry Flagler and the Spectacular Rise and Fall of the Railroad that Crossed an Ocean, now in its 35th printing, and The Man Who Invented Christmas: How Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol Rescued His Career and Revived our Holiday Spirits, which was made into a feature film starring Dan Stevens and Christopher Plummer.

Little Shop of Horrors

Sep 26, 2019 to Oct 5, 2019 - various times - English

Book & Lyrics by Howard Ashman, Music by Alan Mencken

Arriving at the beginning of our 2019-20 season and just in time to inspire you for Halloween, this gem of an American musical comedy marked one of the first collaborations between composer Alan Menken and lyricist/book writer Howard Ashman. Together they went on to write the equally successful The Little Mermaid and the wildly successful Beauty and the Beast. Inspired by the 1960 dark comedy horror film of the same name, it tells the story of a down-on-his-luck resident of Skid Row (or in our production could it be somewhere in Miami?) who is offered the girl of his dreams, fame, and success from an all-powerful carnivorous plant... but at what cost?

The Mystery of Edwin Drood

Nov 14, 2019 to Nov 23, 2019 - various times - English

Book, Music & Lyrics by Rupert Holmes

A hilarious musical whodunit by Rupert Holmes which won the Tony Award in 1986 for Best Musical. Loosely based on Charles Dickens’ famous unfinished novel, it takes audience participation to new heights by letting you directly effect the play’s outcome by voting for whomever you think murdered the unfortunate young Edwin Drood. Presented as a “first night” performance during the Christmas season by the The Music Hall Royale, a troupe of decidedly hammy Victorian actors, this witty, tuneful, and affectionate recreation of a bygone theatrical age is a perfect beginning to your holiday season.

The Trojan Women

Feb 20, 2020 to Feb 29, 2020 - various times - English

By Euripides, Adapted by Ellen McLaughlin

A war to retrieve the beautiful Helen of Troy has ended. The city has been laid to waste; its men slaughtered. Its women have been forced to the beach where the Greeks will soon enslave them as the spoils of war. As they await their fate, Queen Hecuba, her daughter Cassandra and the other women confront the travesties and devastation of war. Ellen McLaughlin’s contemporary adaptation of Euripides’ centuries-old drama is a lucid and humbling perspective on the refugees of war.

American Idiot

Apr 16, 2020 to Apr 25, 2020 - various times - English

Book & Lyrics by Billie Joe Armstrong & Michael Mayer, Music by Green Day

We end our season with a high-octane electric-rock musical with a strong social message. Based on Green Day’s Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, this energy-fueled rock opera features little dialogue and instead relies on the lyrics of Green Day’s albums to execute the story line of three disgruntled men as they flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life.
