Our Own Off-Broadway

An edgy new theater company hits Miami Shores.

In New York City, there’s Broadway, where the productions are lavish, star-studded, and family-friendly. And then there’s off-Broadway, where the plays are edgy, controversial, and usually thought-provoking. Here in Miami, there’s the Arsht Center (Forbidden Broadway, anyone? Anyone?) and ... hey, where’s our off-Broadway? If you’re seeking a new addition to our town’s subversive and intelligent theater scene, there are some new kids on the theatrical block. The Naked Stage promises to deliver shiver-inducing dramas that will leave you believing once again in the power of playwrights.

The troupe’s latest production is 4.48 Psychosis, a taut, shocking peek into the thoughts of a mentally disturbed woman. If it feels too real, that’s because its author Sarah Kane’s final work, an insight into her own life experiences. Starring Katherine Amadeo and directed by Paul Tei, this could scratch the deep, dramatic itch that’s been haunting you ever since you left the Big Apple. See it tonight at 8 at the Pelican Theatre.
Fri., April 25, 8 p.m., 2008
