oUR TOWN

October 26 - November 19, 2017

Written by Thornton Wilder. Directed by Michel Hausmann.

Thornton Wilder’s iconic, Pulitzer Prize winning play is re-imagined for Miami in the 21 st century. The characters at the center of this beloved drama, set in small town New England, speak English, Spanish and Creole - the first time the Wilder Estate has allowed changes to the play’s text. By adding new layers of language and culture, Our Town expands to encompass everyone in a quintessential American – and human – story.

​“You have never seen an “Our Town” quite like the exquisite, emotionally potent production Miami New Drama has just opened at the Colony Theatre on Miami Beach.”

-Christine Dolen, Miami Herald

"Happy tears are likely to result from Miami New Drama’s birthing of a brand-new, compelling vision for Wilder’s play.”

Aaron Krause-, Theatrical Musings

"This production is also a celebration of our town in 2017.”

-Aaron Krause, Theatrical Musings

"This production adds new layers to what it means to celebrate the “small,” seemingly “mundane” aspects of existence on earth.”

-Aaron Krause, Theatrical Musings

"Hausmann and his company have prescribed a wishful dream of varied cultures totally integrated and supportive while maintaining something of their heritage.”

-Bill Hirschman, Florida Theater on Stage

"The creative team’s work is expert.”

-Bill Hirschman, Florida Theater on Stage

"Miami New Drama’s diverse Our Town is a reminder, not just of who we want to be, but who we hope we are underneath.”

-Bill Hirschman, Florida Theater on Stage
