Did you ever wonder what happens behind the scenes during the producing of a play?
Well, we found your answer. Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing and performing a flop called “Nothing’s On.” This uproarious farce features lovers frolicking, doors slamming, clothes being tossed this way and that, with both on stage and back stage hilarity. Noises Off is a sidesplitting festival of delirium that will delight our audiences as part of our 30th Anniversary Season.

Salome by Richard Strauss - Miami

Next date: Jan 27, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

A depraved princess executes a frenzied dance of death.

With its bizarre brew of eroticism and religion, Richard Strauss’s Salome was so disturbing when it first appeared that it was banned in Vienna and London. Today, it’s lost none of its power to send shivers through the audience, and this production eerily captures all the depravity of King Herod’s court in ancient Jerusalem. Starring as the princess whose sexually charged dance leads straight to her own destruction is Melody Moore, the dynamic soprano who has electrified the operas of Janáček, Wagner, and Puccini. Come see Salome cast her potent spell over South Florida.

Next date: Feb 2, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

Main Street Players presents Clark Gable Slept Here, the second show of the 2017-2018 season.

This dark comedy by local playwright Michael McKeever is two doors short of a farce. The fast-paced play is a peek behind the curtain of life in the Hollywood fast lane. The show takes place in a suite at the classic hotel Chateau Marmont on the night of the Golden Globe Awards. What transpires is a bleak, tragic and unapologetically hilarious look at what the movers and shakers of Tinsel Town are willing and able to do in order to keep and preserve their secrets and the status quo of the Hollywood mystique and lifestyle. The show is directed by John Ferry, with Dennis Lyzniak as the production manager.

Small Mouth Sounds

Next date: Feb 16, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

  • Written by Bess Wohl
  • Directed by Rachel Chavkin

Small Mouth Sounds is a funny and ingenious new play that asks how we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us. The New York Times says, “it leaves you moved, refreshed and even enlightened.” And New York Magazine declares “it deserves to be seen and re-seen!” It’s a theatrical experience and an emotional journey you will never forget.

In the quiet of the woods, six strangers embark on a silent retreat. As they struggle to confront their internal demons, their vows of silence collide with their achingly human need to connect. Written by Drama Desk Award winner Bess Wohl (Pretty Filthy) and directed by Obie Award winner Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812), Small Mouth Sounds is “a remarkable range of pain, joy and hope in 100 deeply engrossing minutes.” (Time Out New York)

Orfeo by Christoph Willibald Gluck - Miami

Next date: Mar 17, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

A wife must enter the Underworld to discover the depth of her husband’s devotion.

Gluck’s masterpiece is most famous for its immortal aria, “Che farò senza Euridice.” But it’s also a compelling and deeply personal story of how far one man will go to prove his devotion to his wife. The grief-stricken musician and poet Orfeo risks the terrifying depths of the Underworld to bring back his beloved Euridice alive. For years, the role of Orfeo was the specialty of mezzo-sopranos, but FGO has cast one of today’s most dazzling countertenors, Anthony Roth Costanzo, hailed by The New York Times as an “utterly riveting” performer.

Innov Gnawa

Saturday, May 5, 2018 at 8:00 PM - English

A young musical collective dedicated to exploring Morocco’s gnawa music tradition.

Gnawa music is the ritual trance music of Morocco’s black communities, originally descended from slaves and soldiers once brought from Northern Mali and Mauritania. Often called “The Moroccan Blues,” gnawa music hasa raw, hypnotic power that’s fascinated outsiders as diverse as jazz giant Randy Weston and rock icon Jimi Hendrix. The music is played on an array of instruments — from the lute-like sintir that the Maâlem (master) uses to call the tune — to the metal qarqaba (castinets) with which the kouyos (chorus) keeps time and pounds out clattering, intoxicating rhythms.

Co-presented with Rhythm Foundation as part of the Axis of Love series.

$20 advance /$25 day of show/ Axis of Love Series pass $50.
