GableStage Announces 24/25 Season

GableStage, the venerable Coral Gables based theatre company proudly announces its 26th Season at the historic Biltmore Hotel. Five productions, which illuminate the company’s mission of “confronting today’s issues and ideas” will account for more than 120 performances running from November 2024 through June 2025.


“Our current season has seen record breaking attendance,” said Bari Newport, Producing Artistic Director. “As we prepare for Laughs in Spanish, the final production of our 25th anniversary season and announce an audacious 24/25 line-up, we look forward to shattering even more records.”


The 26th Season shoots and scores with King James (November 1 – 24). First developed at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Company before making its Broadway debut in 2023, this clever dramatic comedy is set to the career of basketball legend Lebron James. Written by Pulitzer Prize Finalist Rajiv Joseph, King James is an intimate chronicle of two friends whose turbulent relationship is best navigated through their shared love of basketball. Actors Melvin Huffnagle (August Wilson’s How I Learned What I Learned) and Gregg Weiner (The Price) star in this Miami Premiere.


Following two sold-out runs at Washington D.C’s Signature Theatre, two actor-musicians, a baby grand and an acoustic guitar bring Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen’s complex relationship to life in Both Sides Now: the Music and Lives of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen (December 13 – January 5). Featuring thirteen songs that soundtracked generations of collective yearn­ing including A Case of You, Hallelujah, Big Yellow Taxi, Su­zanne and Who By Fire, this intimate cabaret examines the mess­iness of being human and the struggle to stay connected. This regional premiere was written by and stars Frost School of Music alum and award-winning jazz vocalist, Danielle Wertz and rock-folk musician Robbie Schaefer. 

Next, audiences are invited to one helluva family reunion! Hot off its Broadway run, Appropriate (January 31 – February 23), is a darkly comic American dra­ma by Pulitzer Finalist and Obie Award winner, Branden Jacobs-Jen­kins. Called “brilliant, blistering and outrageous” by the New York Times, this Miami Premiere puts the DYS in DYSFUNCTIONAL. When long-hidden secrets and buried resentments can no longer be contained, a family is forced to face the ghosts of their past. Starring a cast of exceptional actors and directed by Bari Newport. 


Summer 1976 (March 28 – April 20) is a gorgeous new play by Pulitzer Prize winner David Auburn (Proof). As the Bicentennial is cel­ebrated across the country, an unlikely friendship develops between a fiercely iconoclastic artist and a naïve young housewife. This 2023 Broadway triumph about connection, memories and the small moments that can change the course of our lives is a Miami premiere. Newport directs longtime Florida favorites Patti Gardner (The Price) and Sara Morsey (The Year of Magical Thinking).


Finally, in a historic three-way co-production, Brévo Theatre, Island City Stage and GableStage team up to produce a Shakespearean-sized, Pulitzer Prize Winning comedy - Fat Ham (May 16 - June 15). Swapping a Danish castle for a North Carolina BBQ, James Ijames re-imagines Hamlet’s story of murder and revenge into something hilarious and profound.This joyful, unforgettable South Florida Premiere is made possible with major funding from the Warten Foundation. 


In addition to these five season productions, the theatre will produce a roster of still-to-be-announced special events. Stay tuned.

GableStage’s 26th Season is made possible through major support from Knight Foundation, The Jorge M. Pérez Family Foundation at the Miami Foundation, the Biltmore Hotel, Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council and the Miami-Dade County Mayor and the Board of County Commissioners.
