REVIEW: ARSHT CENTER’S ‘HAMILTON’ LIVES UP TO ITS REPUTATION, IN EVERY WAY

REVIEW: ARSHT CENTER’S ‘HAMILTON’ LIVES UP TO ITS REPUTATION, IN EVERY WAY

Performing Arts

Published 2/22/20

This season, the “Hamilton” love continues unabated, albeit with a different touring company of the same show. Fresh from three weeks at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, the “Angelica” cast has begun a four-week run at Miami’s Arsht Center. The actors are different from the ones in the “Philip” cast who played Fort Lauderdale last season, and of course each brings his or her interpretive skill set to these now-famous roles.But as the silent attentiveness to specific moments and the appreciative roars at the end of multiple numbers so clearly demonstrate, the play (or musical, in this case) is resoundingly the thing. Everyone from diehard “Hamilfans” to first-timers in the audience is there to experience the groundbreaking vision of Miranda and his creative collaborators.From its sold-out debut at New York’s Public Theater in 2015, “Hamilton” has been a piece of wildly inventive yet carefully crafted theater and a cultural phenomenon.MacArthur “genius” …

As these and other writers blossomed, South Florida theaters brought greater focus to premiering new works. Those companies and Miami-Dade County’s Department of Cultural Affairs launched developmental programs, giving playwrights the opportunity to hone their scripts and theater lovers the chance to be among the first to experience a play that might wind up on Broadway (as Cruz’s “Anna in the Tropics,” Demos-Brown’s “American Son” and McCraney’s “Choir Boy” did) or off-Broadway (as McKeever’s “Daniel’s Husband” and “After” did last season).Both the Arsht Center-based Zoetic Stage in Miami and Miami New Drama at Miami Beach’s Colony Theatre have the nurturing of new work as a key part of their theatrical DNA. But the two companies won’t be alone in bringing fresh theater to Miami-Dade stages during the 2019-2020 season. Here’s a brief look at some of the key productions on the horizon, in order of their openings.Christopher Demos-Brown’s …

 ‘MURDER FOR TWO’ AT ACTORS’ PLAYHOUSE ISN’T KILLER, BUT IT GETS THE JOB DONE

‘MURDER FOR TWO’ AT ACTORS’ PLAYHOUSE ISN’T KILLER, BUT IT GETS THE JOB DONE

Performing Arts

Published 7/29/19

The Joe Kinosian-Kellen Blair musical has a history. Created in 2011 in Chicago, where it won the Joseph Jefferson Award as best new musical, the show had an off-Broadway run in 2013, a national tour and multiple regional productions. Martin Landry, who plays the musical’s multiple suspects and serves as the production’s musical director, made his “Murder for Two” debut in the national tour and performed the show at eight theaters in seven states before hitting the stage in Coral Gables. Mark Schenfisch, who plays an aspiring detective, has also done multiple productions of the show.That the actors, who must also be excellent pianists, have done the show before is a blessing for a couple of reasons. Schenfisch replaced a previously announced performer just a week before the show opened, and it’s doubtful that someone new to the intricacies of themusical could have mastered it and achieved a chemistry with Landry in such a short time. Moreover, the frenetic, 100-minute …

The Detroit Project, three linked plays by MacArthur “genius” grant winner Morisseau, consists of “Detroit ’67” (a 2013 drama set during the 1967 Detroit riots), “Paradise Blue” (a 2015 play set in the city’s Black Bottom neighborhood in 1949) and 2016’s “Skeleton Crew,” a four-character drama set in the break room of an auto stamping plant as the 2008 economic downturn is starting to hit the city hard.GableStage is now bringing Morisseau’s words and insights to life in a new production of “Skeleton Crew,” a play that is both powerfully specific and more broadly resonant. The black, working-class folks toiling in this relatively small plant where metal is turned into car parts worry about so many things: putting food on the table and keeping a roof over their heads, pressured personal lives, building a better future, losing their jobs. Who can’t relate?This time, artistic director Joseph Adler has entrusted the production to Haitian-American actor, writer …
