Miami Stories. One-Act Plays

Featuring Nestor Torres, Gwen Margolis and Mitchell Kaplan March 9th, 2007Following its successful 2006 debut, Miami Stories, a series of three one-act plays penned by local personalities, promises to be another sensation this ear. The dinner/theatre production is a benefit for the award-winning New Theatre and takes place on Friday, March 9th at the Grand Bay Club on Key Biscayne. Three local personalities, flutist Nestor Torres, Florida Senator Gwen Margolis and Books & Books founder Mitchell Kaplan, have each written a ten-minute play on a subject of their choice, and the plays will be professionally cast and directed by Ricky J. Martinez, New Theatre’s Artistic director. Nestor Torres also will appear in his production. Miami Stories replicates the trendsetting Chicago Stories, which has been a hit for 19 consecutive seasons in Chicago and inspired similar fundraisers for theaters in San Francisco and Seattle. Philanthropist Harvey Burstein, a Chicago native who makes Miami Beach his home, originally presented the concept to the New Theatre, spearheading its 2006 debut presentation for the Miami market.
