AN OCTOROON

Florida premiere of An Octoroon by Obie Award-winning playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins who takes the plot of Dion Boucicault’s 1859 antebellum melodrama, The Octoroon, and smashes it with a 21st-century sensibility. Directed by John Rodaz (Carbonell Award winner) and designed by Giancarlo Rodaz (Carbonell Award nominee) this production will feature original music to create a theatrical event that is equally hilarious and moving, subversive and provocative.

 

Winner of the 2014 OBIE Award for Best New American Play.

 

"A breath-taking production that can only be called an experience...
An Octoroon's endless visual escapades bring an edge against the throat of Miami theatre while audiences are unable to stop their laughter" 
-
Broadway World                                                                           

"A powerful satire and a wild ride" -Artburst Miami
                                                      

"If you're an old fuddy-duddy, this play is NOT for you-so haters back off, but if you enjoy razor sharp cutting edge theatre don't miss this spectacular production" -C.P.

 

"This decade’s most eloquent theatrical statement on race in America today.”
