The 2015-2016 Theater Up Close series at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts will feature six plays by two companies — Miami’s Zoetic Stage and the House Theatre of Chicago — in the center’s Carnival Studio Theater. Until June 19, you can save 40 percent off single ticket prices if you become a subscriber, paying $190 total for all six.

Next season, Zoetic will present the world premiere of Stripped, a play by one of its award-winning founders, Christopher Demos-Brown (Nov. 5-22); Gina Gionfriddo’s Rapture, Blister, Burn (Jan. 14-31), and the musical Passion by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine (Feb. 18-March 13). The House will bring its Arsht-commissioned Hammer Trinity (The Iron Stag King, The Crownless King and The Excelsior King), a three-show marathon that will be priced at $150 (April 2-May 8).

So yes, that early subscription is a deal. The Carnival is in the center’s Ziff Ballet Opera House, 1300 Biscayne Blvd. For information, call 305-949-6722 or visit www.arshtcenter.org.
