OLD WICKED SONGS
by Jon Marans

A Miami Premiere

January 13th – February 4th

Preview Performance: Friday, Jan 12th

In 1986 Vienna, a young Jewish pianist arrives to study; but before he begins his piano instruction, he must first take singing lessons from the harsh, anti-semitic Professor Mashkan. As the play unfolds through the poetry of Heinrich Heine and the music of Robert Schumann, secrets are revealed, and these two men from different generations find they have much more in common than they think. Directed by playwright Jon Marans, this 1996 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize is a play with music that stars two actors who are classically trained pianists. Sponsored by Funding Arts Network

In this epic piece of storytelling, three actors triumphantly journey through 163 years of history. Beginning in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1844, a Bavarian immigrant dreams of a better life. In 2008, his descendants unleash an unprecedented financial disaster. The spectacular rise and fall of Lehman Brothers is both an intimate family saga and a colossal exposé of unquenchable capitalism. David Kwiat, Mark H. Dold and Brandon Morris give triumphant performances in a production directed by GableStage producing artistic director, Bari Newport.

It’s Art Basel and the stakes are high for the gallery Mariana runs in the Wynwood Arts District in Miami. And when Mariana’s movie-star mother tries to help out, things get even more complicado. A fast paced, cafecíto-induced comedy about art and success—and mothers and daughters. Join the party, embrace life’s twists and turns, and mark your calendar for this uproarious new comedy.

Larissa FastHorse is the first indigenous American woman to have a play on Broadway. This will be the regional premiere of Fasthorse’s shocking satire that “flips the bird” on one of America’s most prolific myths—the original thanksgiving meal. With provocative questions around erasure and authorship of history, this comedy asks how we proceed when steadfast assumptions are disrupted.
