Latest Coconut Grove Playhouse news
Many feel that it's an ego thing between Spring, Eidson and Joe Adler, of GableStage.
GableStage has sent out the following to their patrons and subscribers:
"You were there for us on March 12 and we are extremely grateful to you. With your support the issue involving GableStage/Coconut Grove Playhouse was passed by Committee vote. Now we need your help again.
On Tuesday, April 21, beginning at 10 am, the full County Commission will be meeting and a final vote will be taken regarding the agreement between the County and GableStage for our new home at the Coconut Grove Playhouse. We need you to attend and speak at this hearing to show your strong support for this agreement.
At the very start of the meeting, anyone attending who wishes to speak will have an opportunity. When you arrive, please sign up to speak "for GableStage". Once more, here are the facts - and we need you to stress them at the Commission meeting:
We are supporting Mayor Carlos Gimenez's recommendation to enter into this long-term agreement between GableStage and the County to operate and program the renewed Coconut Grove Playhouse.
GableStage has a long track record of artistic excellence and service to our community, including outreach to students.
The County was able to secure a 99-year lease from the State for the Playhouse based on the inclusion of GableStage in a Business Plan for the Playhouse.
This Business Plan requires that a 300-seat theater at the Playhouse be created for GableStage and that this operating agreement with the County be approved.
GableStage is prepared to take full responsibility for creating artistically excellent theater for the Playhouse and raising the money to cover all operating and programming costs.
The County is gaining a partner in GableStage that brings instant credibility, given our track record for presenting excellent work.
You have been here for us throughout the years - and now we need you once more. Please help us by being there to support this critically important step for our future.
