The Centro Cultural Español and Microtheater Miami near downtown is presenting new programming targeted to LGBTQ audiences.
A series called “Out of the Container” will run through June 25 at the Centro Cultural Espanol, 1490 Biscayne Blvd., with performances 8 to 11 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays.
The programming offers drama and comedy with 12 plays inspired by themes such as sexual identity, gender politics and other topics related to the LGBTQ community.
“Out of the Container” premieres a special “container” or play titled “Teatro Sorpresa,” produced by Abraham Pulido. “Teatro Sorpresa” challenges local actors to perform “cold readings” of plays without sets or rehearsals.
Microtheater Miami is a program of Centro Cultural Espanol and supported in part by the Miami-Dade County Tourist Development Council.
Others plays presented during the series include “Close Up,” “Market for Mares” and “Dear Mom,” about a relationship between a gay teenager and his mother.
“Out of the Container” will showcase four plays in English and eight plays in Spanish.
Admission is $5. For more information, visit www.ccemiami.org.
