In this autobiographical tour de force, the late Pulitzer Prize-winner takes audiences on a life-changing voyage from being a young poet in Pittsburgh’s Hill District to his encounters with racism, music, love and transformative friendships. Starring Miami’s own Robert Strain and directed by Carey Brianna Hart, August Wilson’s How I Learned What I Learned charts one man’s journey of self-discovery and what it means to be a black artist in America.

“Complex and surprisingly funny […] a crowd-pleasing 100 minutes in the company of a wonderful writer.”
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Thanksgiving Play

Thursday, December 7 – 10:30am


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.

“Very, very funny… this clever satire is something for
which to be truly thankful.”
– Hollywood Reporter

Laughs in Spanish

Friday, May 24 – 10:30am


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. Winner of the Steinberg and the Edgerton Foundation New Play Awards.

“A new American classic.”
Broadway World Denver
