Area Stage Company is set to present an original production of Cabaret, directed by the innovative young talent Giancarlo Rodaz, who headed the troupe's dynamic and critically acclaimed production of Shrek the Musical this spring.

The professional production of Cabaret opens August 10 and runs through August 26, with performances Friday to Sunday at Area Stage Company at the Riviera Plaza in Coral Gables.

A story of love, ambition, and moral decay set at the decadent Kit Kat Klub during the rise of the Nazis in 1930's Berlin, Cabaret features music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and book by Joe Masteroff.

Though Rodaz is inspired by the iconic 1972 Bob Fosse directed film starring Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey, as well as the highly successful Broadway revivals headed by Sam Mendes, he is determined to make this Cabaret his own.

Price: $15-$35.

Time: Fri. 7:30pm, Sat. 2:00pm & 7:30pm, Sun. 5:00pm.

Es la historia de un popular showman venezolano quien después de una vida de éxito y realización profesional sueña con conquistar la audiencia televisiva norteamericana, llegando a Miami con la seguridad de que sus logros en su país natal le abrirán las puertas en el nuevo mercado. Visa Para Un Sueño, cuenta la historia de cómo el hasta entonces ciudadano VIP se convierte en un humilde inmigrante enfrentándose a una realidad llena de obstáculos, logrando al final sus sueños gracias a su perserverancia. Empezar de cero en otro país no es fácil, por ello el ex famoso personaje tendrá que superar muchas dificultades y luchar para sobrevivir en un sistema que pareciera empeñado en no dejarle avanzar. Los castings se suceden sin éxito, su aspecto físico, su acento, el no tener visa de trabajo, le impiden la entrada con éxito a su nueva vida y al mundo del espectáculo. El tener que transitar por empleos miserables y situaciones infames le hace preguntarse lo que todo inmigrante hace: ¿quedarse o regresar a casa? Sólo la decisión firme de triunfar, la humildad, la fé y la perseverancia le permiten abrirse camino.

El musical de los inmigrantes se estrenó el 28 de Abril de 2006 en Miami, Florida, siendo esta una exitosa temporada con más de 24.000 espectadores y “sold out” en todas las funciones. Visa Para Un Sueño,escrita por Manuel Mendoza y Alejandro Aragón, con canciones con letra y música de Raúl González y José Alberto Almenara, dirigida por Manuel Mendoza; regresa renovada, repotenciada, con un elenco de primera línea que acompañará a Raúl González en esta nueva etapa y se estrenará el 10 de Agosto del 2018 en Miracle Theatre en Coral Gables.

When Manny arrives, he carries something that destroys Lemon’s world further, but it also could be exactly what she’s been hoping for, the choice is hers.

Dracula

Next date: Oct 11, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

A World Premiere play by award-winning playwright and Zoetic Stage co-founder Michael McKeever.

It’s 1897, Jonathan Harker and his fiancée Mina Murray are welcoming Count Dracula from Transylvania. From that point on, nothing is what you’d expect it to be. Using Bram Stoker’s novel as starting point, McKeever has reinvented the gothic horror tale with a feminist point of view and created female characters that not only stand up to the title character, but eventually overcome him. Breaking the mold of what a Victorian “lady” should be, the women in this DRACULA are strong, determined and unwilling to play victim to any predator. A very modern take on a classic story.

Inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance—a play seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish culture, and by others as an act of traitorous libel. Set at a time when waves of immigrants were changing the face of America, this play with music charts the history of an incendiary drama and the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it.
