GableStage Takes Brothers Size on the Road; Zoetic Slates Staged Reading; Light Box Turns On

 Taking it to the Streets

If the price of a ticket or your schedule prevented you from seeing GableStage’s  triumphant production of Tarell Alvin McCraney’s The Brothers Size, both obstacles disappear this weekend.

The moving drama will be presented for a $5 ticket at Lou Rawls Auditorium on the campus of Florida Memorial College in Miami Gardens at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are available by visiting http://www.ticketweb.com and entering the name of the show.

McCraney is a Miami native who has won international acclaim for his plays melding unique vibrant language and poetic imagery drawn from the urban streets and West African mythology. This is not only the first time he has directed his own work, but the first time a professional company in his home county has mounted any of his works.

The production contains strong language and sexual themes, and is not recommended for teenagers under 16.

The cut-rate ticket through Culture Shock Miami is underwritten by the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners, Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, Children’s Trust, Peacock Foundation and Florida Memorial University.

 Zoetic Gives First Look at Edwards Play

The free staged reading season is in full swing with Zoetic Stage presenting Mack Edwards’ never before heard play, Mirror at the Top of the Stairs at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 10, at the Caldwell Theatre.

Amy London will direct a cast that includes Antonio Amadeo, Oscar Cheda, Patti Gardner, Edson Jean Amy Miller Brennan, Barry Tarallo and Kent Wilson.

Edwards is an investigative reporter, essayist, speechwriter and television screenwriter. Mirror, his first play, is described in a news release as “a fascinating new work… a complex and cathartic tale of letting go of the past and living in the now.”

Edwards was quoted in a news release as saying, “Theater, where I intend to be for a long time, is the only stage on which I can share a life and, for the first time, literally see the impact my words, therefore my life, have had on people.”

Opening the Box
Like many other facilities, The Light Box at Goldman Warehouse has been presenting works at its new digs in Miami’s Design District for several months, but it has scheduled a grand opening at a gala at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6.
The highly-flexible performance space at 404 NW 26 Street in Miami is home to, among other groups, the Miami Light Project, Mad Cat Theatre co. and M Ensemble.

The evening includes cocktails, canapés, dancing and dessert bookending Symphony for the Dance Floor, described in a news release as “Acclaimed composer/violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain presents an ecstatic fusion of music, art and movement …  a sonic collage of classical, pop and hip-hop sounds. … Centered around the shrieking, singing, and seduction of (Roumain’s) violin playing, the production is augmented with masterful collaborations including: choreography by Millicent Johnnie (former resident choreographer of Urban Bush Women); ebullient live dancing; bombastic laptop/turntable soundscapes; raw, uncompromising photography and video by Jonathan Mannion (best known for his soul bearing portraits of hip-hop icons Jay-Z, Lauryn Hill, Mos Def and Eminem); and emceeing by actor/rapper Lord Jamar (member of hip-hop group Brand Nubian and former star of HBO’s Oz) – all under the direction of D.J. Mendel.”
