To kick off Miami Museum Month, The National YoungArts Foundation, a Miami-based organization that identifies and supports the next generation of artists in the visual, literary, design and performing arts, will present Romeo & Juliet Outside the Box on Friday, May 8 from 7-9 pm on the YoungArts Plaza. Playwright and YoungArts alumnus Tarell Alvin McCraney (1999 YoungArts Winner in Theater), along with filmmaker and fellow YoungArts alumnus Andrew Hevia (2003 YoungArts Winner in Cinematic Arts), will bring together some of Miami's electric performance artists, including dancers from the Miami City Ballet and Gentry George, appearing courtesy of Peter London Global Dance Project, to recreate an interactive evening inspired by Romeo and Juliet. Sponsored by ArtPlace America, the event is free of charge and open to the public.
