White Rose Miami Brings "Soul Searching" Performance to PAX

If one of your resolutions for 2013 was to sit your ass in more theater seats and on fewer bar stools, PAX Miami is about to launch an event that will make your transition into "cultured-ness" a lot less jarring. Starting this Friday and repeating every third weekend of the month, the venue, also known as the Performing Arts Exchange, will host a theater collective by the name of White Rose Miami. The group will bring live story-telling -- via dance, music, and acting -- to a stage that's surrounded by cozy table seating and yes, a good number of bar stools to boot.

Melissa Almaguer and Ivan Lopez are the two born-and-bred Miami natives and thespians who created the "theater company," though they resort to using that moniker only for lack of a better term. "We tell stories in whatever form fits best," explained Almaguer.
