Second theater added to the Grove Playhouse?
Mr. Eidson an arts activist leads a group of playhouse activists. It would add 750 additional seats to the 300-seat theater.
Seems like an excellent idea in that it would allow the playhouse to be used more often. I suppose the goal would be to have the building hosting events 300 or more days a year.
While GablesStage has always been talked about as running the smaller theater, with Joseph Adler as the artistic director, Mr. Eidson suggests that the Adrienne Arsht Center take over the 750 seat theater.
The Playhouse is being transferred to the county and FIU, which will lease the Playhouse.
It's believed that the larger sized theater would attract bigger names and productions.
I think at this point anything to open the playhouse again is the goal. It's been eight years since the Playhouse closed with "Sonja Flew" on the marquee.
