If Shakespeare had been a tweaker, he might have set something up like the Naked Stages 24-Hour Theater Project a veritable meth lab of creative collaboration and ad hoc performance. Lest you believe, however, that any original play conceived, written, rehearsed, and performed in a 24-hour period will be of schwag quality, we challenge you to show up at the Miracle Theatre this Monday evening at 8 and see for yourself. Nine short plays none of which existed this past Saturday by nine Miami playwrights will be staged for your enjoyment and amazement, and we promise youll leave wondering, What else could be done in 24 hours? Build the new Marlins stadium? Balance the county budget? Finish the construction on Biscayne Boulevard? As the Naked Stage will prove, with enough Bustelo, anything is possible. Tickets cost $25.
