New Theatre (THE NEW) is excited to announce the inaugural event in our newly created BOOMFROG! Series, a series of events geared to original theatrical collectives and current topical entertainment which will run in conjunction with our regular 2012-2013 season. BOOMFROG! begins with a BUST! — our first event is a collective project entitled Keeping A-Breast.
Keeping A-Breast is an evening about — well — breasts! Voluptuous or petite, healthy or reconstructed, New Theatre presents an evening of tribute to the wonder, the beauty and the importance of the breast. Featuring writers both familiar and new to our community — including Catherine Bush (Just a Kiss, 2007 Steinberg Award finalist), David Caudle (The Sunken Living Room, winner Southern New Plays Festival), Vanessa Garcia (one of the Miami Herald’s ’20 under 40′ in the arts in 2010), nationally recognized poet Peggy C. Hall, playwrights Elly Rakowitz and Ruth Pleva, James Carrey, R. Kent Wilson and our Artistic Director Ricky J. Martinez, and co-directed by Martinez and New Theatre Literary Manager Steven A. Chambers.
Keeping A-Breast will kick off our 2012-13 season on September 1 and run through September 16, 2012; a portion of the proceeds from the performances will go to support breast cancer awareness programming in Miami-Dade County.
In addition to Keeping A-Breast, the 2012-13 season will include Willy Russell’s Educating Rita, the world premiere of Robert Caisley’s Happy — part of a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere, John Pielmeier’s Agnes of God and a second as yet to be determined BOOMFROG! event. Rounding out the season will be the world premiere of Artistic Director Ricky J. Martinez’s Road Through Heaven, a play from his trilogy In God’s Land.
