By October 20, 2017September 1st, 2021No Comments

Miami New Drama (MiND) at Colony Theatre opens the season with a ground-breaking production of the classic drama, Our Town

MiND’s Artistic Director, Michel Hausmann, has re-envisioned Thornton Wilder’s iconic tale of life, love and death in small town America for 21st century Miami, incorporating translations in Spanish by Pulitzer Prize-winner, Nilo Cruz, and in Creole by renowned playwright, Jeff Augustin.

A multi-cultural slate of acclaimed international and South Florida actors will bring Our Town to life. Led by Keith Randolph Smith (Spike Lee’s Malcolm X, Broadway’s Fences andJitney), the cast includes Venezuelan TV and film star Carlota Sosa; renowned Cuban stage and TV actor Javier Valcarcel; and award winning Venezuelan film actor Luigi Sciamanna. Carbonell winner Jeni Hacker and notable South Florida performers include Steve Gladstone and Gabriel Bonilla.

Miami New Drama’s Our Town redefines the quintessential American – and human – story. “We’re not changing the essence,” says artistic director Michel Hausmann. “Our version of the play adds new layers of language and culture that make it more real for a 21st century audience. By doing that we bring it closer to this community.”
