Good, God, Go by Letty Bassart
The fifth season of Miami Made will take place from Tuesday, February 26 through Sunday, March 3, celebrating works-in-progress produced, created, and performed by Miami-based artists. The six-day celebration will feature a pop-up event at the Riviera South Beach hotel and several performances at the Adrienne Arsht Center's Carnival Studio Theatre.
The program kicks off with two showcase nights at the Riviera, where guests will partake in an interactive reality TV spoof. Thursday (February 28), things head inland to the Arsht for a stage reading of Fear Up Harsh, a work based on America's fascination with military honors and awards. Friday (March 1) welcomes Dinner Partiers (Ironic and Themed), a play about couples caught in sticky social situations and the pressures of marriage and friendships. On Saturday (March 2), choreographer Letty Bassart presents Good, God, Go, complete with a marching band, 50-piece sculptural installation, and live vocalists. Closing the festival will be a play by Mark Della Ventura, Gabe Hammad, and David Michael Sirois, Two-Merz, which follows two brothers who’ve just been diagnosed with terminal cancer.
All Miami Made Festival events are free and open to the public. Admission to the Riviera events are first come, first serve. Arsht center performances are general admission seating with tickets available at the box office at 10 a.m. the morning of the event.
