A safe, outdoor, and socially distanced theater experience for the times of the pandemic with seven live groundbreaking performances in seven uniquely-transformed storefronts on Miami Beach’s historic Lincoln Road. 7 Deadly Sins was the largest professional live theater production taking place in the United States during the pandemic, featuring provocative new takes on the seven deadly sins by a diverse group of nationally-recognized, award winning playwrights and live music in an Outdoor Purgatory Lounge. It was sold out for two months and extended twice by popular demand, receiving national attention from The New York Times and American Theater Magazine.

“‘Seven Deadly Sins’ was extended twice, selling out for most of its two-month run. According to Actors Equity, 'Seven Deadly Sins,' produced at a cost of $580,000, was the biggest live professional theater production in the country at the time, employing 100 theater workers, from stage crew to designers and actors.”

-Jordan Levin, The New York Times

 

“It’s liberating to understand we are in the business of live storytelling. The possibilities are really endless.”

-Jordan Levin, The New York Times

 

“Theatrical achievements are measured in myriad ways, and this one has led to  seven new works by significant playwrights, enthusiastic reviews, and jobs for multiple artists...a fresh demonstration of the engaging power of live theater.”

-Christine Dolen, American Theater Magazine

 

“Nine months into the country’s battle against COVID-19, Miami New Drama and its boundlessly imaginative artistic director, Michel Hausmann, have figured out a way to turn vice into virtue, exploring the seven deadly sins in an ambitious return to live theater.”

-Christine Dolen, Miami Herald

 

“When the coronavirus pandemic began, theater director Michel Hausmann sought to devise a safe and effective way of performing. Nine months later, he and his theater company have done it by making the world a stage -- at least part of it -- providing catharsis to performers and the public alike.”

-Leila Macor, Yahoo! Style / AFP News

 

“‘Seven Deadly Sins’ is a safe and imaginative reminder of live theater’s undiminished power.”

-Christine Dolen, Miami Herald

 

“The sheer existence of Miami New Drama’s experiential short-play collaboration 7 Deadly Sins feels as surreal as it is miraculous.”

-John Thomason, Florida Theater On Stage
