Miami New Drama is a theater company committed to artistically excellent work unique to our diverse and extraordinary region with a vision of theater as a powerful form of social engagement. Led by Producing Artistic Director, Michel Hausmann, and Managing Director, Nicholas Richberg, we've grown exponentially due the quality of our work and the connection built with our community.

In response to COVID-19, Miami New Drama developed 7 DEADLY SINS, an outdoor, socially distanced, and sinfully-safe theater experience presented across storefronts on Lincoln Road and the Colony Theatre loading dock. It won a nationally recognized and prestigious Drama League award. 7 DEADLY SINS was the largest live professional theater production produced over Nov 2020 - Jan 2021, employing over 100 theater artists, technicians, and administrators and a diverse group of nationally recognized, award-winning playwrights. It was ambitious, culturally relevant, and, ultimately, groundbreaking. When live theater was deemed an impossibility, we found a way.
