Miami New Drama reimagines Thornton Wilder’s iconic American play for multicultural Miami audiences. The classic story centers on the everyday lives of two families, the Webbs and the Gibbs, in a fictional small town, Grover’s Corners. In this world premiere multilingual production directed by Michel Hausmann, the Webbs speak Spanish at home, and the Gibbs speak Creole while in town they all speak English — reminiscent of today’s America. The translations, by Pulitzer Prize winning Cuban-American Nilo Cruz and critically acclaimed Haitian-American Jeff Augustin, mark the first time the Thornton Wilder Estate has allowed the text of Our Town to be altered.If you love Soul Of Miami, please consider leaving a testimonial.
