MicroTheater Miami adds improv to its English-Spanish offerings

Miami’s innovative MicroTheater, which unfolds every Wednesday-Thursday in English and Friday-Sunday in Spanish, has turned its Wednesday performances into an improvised “Dynamic Night.” Taking place in seven converted shipping containers dotted around the side courtyard of Centro Cultural Español, 1490 Biscayne Blvd., the unscripted Wednesday shows are titled In the Zone, The Cartoon Time Machine, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern See Dead People, Christopher Walken’s Adventures Through Time, Christmas in May and The Musical. Each 15-minute show gets six or more performances a night between 8 and 11 p.m., for a maximum of 15 audience members at a time.

On Thursdays from 8 to 11 p.m., audiences can see Animal Attraction by Brian Michael Cohen, Another Castle by Desiree Mora, Hunger Pains by O’Neil Delapenha, I Passed Jesus on His Way Out of Town by Adam Crain, The Left Turn at Albuquerque by Lisa Perierra and Push Play by Humberto M. Belli.

The Spanish-language lineup, which is performed from 8 to 11 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 7 to 10 p.m. Sunday, consists of Nada por delante, nada por detrás by Alberto Garcia Martin, 4 tetas y un funeral by Borja Texeira, La hora del dragón by Carlos Mugica, Habitacion 067 and Y creo que es todo lo que ha pasado hoy by Miguel Ángel González and Los pondedores by Iván Tula. On Friday and Saturday from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m., MicroTheater has an R-rated Spanish program featuring five shows.

Tickets to each short MicroTheater play are $5, and theatergoers can see as many or as few as they wish. For information, call 305-448-9677 or visit
