FIU students and grads come Unhinged

Mike_headshot Eight young theater artists -- Ashley Alvarez, Jose Grau, Dixon Gutierrez, Morgan Howland-Cook, Bertha Leal, Michael Leon (that's Michael, the artistic director, in the photo), Matthe Mur and Denisse Schwartz -- believe there's room for another professional company in Miami-Dade County.  Particularly a company that gravitates toward experimental/engaging interpretations of plays.

Mostly current and former students at Florida International University, they have founded a company called Unhinged Theatre, planning a six-show season which they'll kick off Dec. 11 with a production of Jose Rivera's References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot. (Note, however, that the Miami Lakes-based Alliance Theatre Lab has already announced a production of the same play for January. Curious.)

Also on the Unhinged docket: Patrick Hamilton's Gaslight, Stephen Adly Guirgis' Den of Thieves, Paula Vogel's Mineola Twins, Craig Lucas' Stranger and Shel Silverstein's A Night of Shel Silverstein.

Rivera's play runs Dec. 11-21, with performances at 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 7 p.m. Sunday.  Tickets are $15 ($10 students). The show goes on at Studio 1415, 1415 NE 129th St., North Miami.  For info, call 305-785-7377 or visit the Unhinged web site.

Thanks Christine for the heads up.These things happen with new companies all the time. (Some old ones as well) Goes to show how important it is for Artistic Directors to do their homework. We wish everyone at Unhinged great success.
