From the Producing Artistic Director

The 2021-2022 season was a year of rebirth at GableStage.

I was honored to begin my tenure in April 2021 as the second producing artistic director the company has ever had, following — but not replacing — the legendary Joe Adler, who passed away in 2020, just as the pandemic was closing the theatre.

The last year has been a whirlwind as we reopened the theatre, brought back and added key staff - including a development director and marketing director – pulled in record donations, and launched an ambitious season of performances, in-person and streaming.

Despite the ongoing pandemic, which required reshuffling schedules and the cancellation of some performances, we had a tremendously successful year. We had nearly 11,000 attendees at our shows last season, along with more than 1,000 who viewed shows on our new streaming platform. And our student programming reached 4,500 high school students. More than 400 donors gave generously and allowed us to reopen and build our staff and programming.

None of this work would have been possible without the support of our board, staff, artists, donors and volunteers and their unwavering commitment to nonprofit theatre in Miami. I am enormously grateful to GableStage’s legions of supporters and am excited about what comes next.

Pre-Show Talks

Creating an Inclusive Culture Workshop

Beginning 20 minutes before the start of each performance, the audience gathers in the outdoor cafe where Bari or a dramaturg engage in an investigation of themes related to the production. The mission of these dramaturgical talks is to give the audience a lens into the work, which they otherwise may not have. Bari strongly believes, “as with any art, the more one understands the work, the more they will support it ”

When an artist involved in the piece is available, Bari or the dramaturg will have a public conversation as the pre-talk instead

Inclusive Special Chat & Chew

Guest artists included: Eleanor Reissa (director, co-writer Papp), Claudia Rankine (playwright, The White Card), Jessica Provenz (playwright, BOCA) and Teo Castellanos (director, Fade).

Diversity & Inclusion Workshops

Five virtual workshops led by Katie Christie of Voices United included group discussions, activities, mixed media and the poetry of “The White Card” author Claudia Rankine. These activities further explored the themes of this introspective play.

Part 1 & 2-Answering the Questions: Why Do We Need Equity & Inclusion?

Part 3- Exploring Causes of Injustice

Part 4- Looking Back: Whose Shoulders Are We Standing On?

Part 5- Looking Forward: Develop Personal Justice Practice

The White Card

A moving and revelatory distillation of racial divisions as experienced in the white spaces of the living room, the art gallery, the theater, and the imagination itself.

The Year of Magical Thinking

In this dramatic adaptation of her award-winning, bestselling memoir, which The New York Times called “an indelible portrait of loss and grief… a haunting portrait of a four-decade-long marriage,” Joan Didion transforms the story of the sudden and unexpected loss of her husband and their only daughter into a stunning and powerful one-woman play.

It’s Lucia's first TV writing job. As a Hispanic novelist, she may be the “diversity hire” she’s heard whispers about. Uncertain whether she can make a place for herself in Hollywood, she feels less alone when she meets Abel, the Latino janitor

A comedy about class, integrity, and culture.

What's Ahead?

GableStage's newest education initiatives

GableStage proudly announces four innovative educational programs for its upcoming 2022-2023 season. Ignite: the initiative that ignites the ambitions of the next generation of theatre artists; Shakespeare-in-the-Schools: brings students an abridged, modernized version of Shakespeare’s most classic plays; Mainstage School Matinees: invites high school students to special performances created just for them; and Diary of a Production: a 6-week course for adults (subscribers only!) that explores the production cycle from script to stage.

With a mission of confronting today’s issues and ideas, GableStage’s new producing artistic director Bari Newport strives to strengthen appreciation for the role theatre plays in a community. Having played an essential role in Miami’s professional theatre ecology since 1979, GableStage has been at the forefront of intimate, edgy, and inspiring work seen by over 400,000 patrons and 250,000 students Newport, who has a long history of stewarding education programs, has prioritized the development of GableStage’s educational wing.

“Truthfully, if not for the support of the Perez Family Foundation, through their CreArte grant, we would not have been able to launch the ambitious educational programming we are offering this season,” Newport said. “That grant gave us the opportunity to hire the staff needed to manage the additional programming and also the ability to experiment with what our foundational educational offerings would be. Because of CreArte, we were able to bring on additional donors for the specific offerings – thus ensuring our ability to execute them fully. It is an exciting time.”
