The Adrienne Arsht Center teams up with Mad Cat Theatre Company this April to present the heavy metal play BROADSWORD. Nominated for five Carbonell Awards (South Florida’s version of the Tony Awards), the workshop production of BROADSWORD opened in Miami in 2009, and since then has rocketed onto the national scene, including a staged reading at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. and a workshop production at the esteemed Juilliard School in New York City. Written by award-winning Miami playwright Marco Ramirez, directed by acclaimed writer/director/actor Paul Tei, and featuring a cast of local actors, BROADSWORD will premiere as a fully-staged and complete production at the Adrienne Arsht Center at the end of April, 2010.
“BROADSWORD is a tremendous showcase of our local South Florida talent and the ideal production with which to launch the Center’s co-presenting partnership with the critically acclaimed Mad Cat Theatre Company,” said M. John Richard, President and CEO of the Adrienne Arsht Center. “The writer, director, and cast represent some of Miami’s best and brightest theatrical innovators. We are proud to support this production and continue to serve as a home for the development of local talent and risk-taking theater.”
Supporting local artists and theater companies is one of our most important and exciting missions, and the Adrienne Arsht Center is thrilled to join forces with Mad Cat’s fiercely original team. Bringing local companies to the Adrienne Arsht Center stage not only increases exposure to new audiences, but also raises the bar for all elements of the production, including set, light and sound design which allows company members to work alongside seasoned professionals using state-of-the-art equipment.
