DRACULA

Dracula
By Michael McKeever
Directed by Stuart Meltzer
A World Premiere
Zoetic Stage, Miami, Florida
at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts
October 11 - 28, 2018

A World Premiere play by award-winning playwright and Zoetic Stage co-founder
Michael McKeever. It's 1897, and Jonathan Harker and his fiancée Mina are
welcoming Count Dracula from Transylvania. From that point on, nothing is what
you'd expect. Using Bram Stoker's novel as starting point, McKeever has reinvented
the Gothic horror tale and - taking a feminist point of view - created female
characters that not only stand up to the title character, but eventually overcome
him. The women in this Dracula are strong, determined and unwilling to play victim
to any predator. A very modern take on a classic story.


THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME

The Curious Incident of the Dog
in the Night-Time

By Simon Stephens
Directed by Stuart Meltzer
Zoetic Stage, Miami, Florida
at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts
January 17 - February 3, 2019

Simon Stephens' Tony Award-Winning adaptation of Mark Haddon's
internationally best-selling novel, comes to thrilling life onstage. Fifteen
year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally
intelligent but not well equipped to deal with everyday life. When he
falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor's dog, he sets out to identify
the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery that will
change his life. An incredible journey to the world of a very
special mind. Time Magazine hailed it as "Eye-opening, life-affirming
and unmissable."


EVERY BRILLIANT THING

Every Brilliant Thing
By Duncan Macmillan
with Jonny Donahoe
Directed by Stuart Meltzer
A South Florida Premiere
Zoetic Stage, Miami, Florida
at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts
February 14 - March 3, 2019

This exhilarating play strikes a delicate balance between sobering loss
and cathartic laughter. In this one-person tour de force, a man
attempts to cure his mother's depression by creating a list of the best
things in the world. The list grows as he progresses from childhood ("Ice
Cream"), to college ("Surprises") and marriage ("Falling in Love"). But
when life deals a bitter blow, the list proves to be helpful to the son in
ways that it could never be for the mother. London's The Stage
called it an "Extraordinary piece of inclusive, participative theatre.'


Sweeney Todd

Sweeney Todd,
The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Hugh Wheeler
Directed by Stuart Meltzer
Zoetic Stage, Miami, Florida
at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts
March 14 - April 7, 2019

This modern musical masterpiece tells the story of the obsessively
vengeful barber Benjamin Barker and his twisted partnership with the
outrageous Mrs. Lovett who together, devise a devilish plot to add a
special ingredient to a recipe that has all of London dying for their pies.
Sondheim's gloriously gruesome musical combines melodrama and
murder and features one of the most thrilling scores ever written for the
stage. Zoetic Stage, continuing its ongoing relationship with the work of
Stephen Sondheim, will present an interpretation that promises new
surprises and a whole new feel to this beloved musical.
