On Thursday, it was being widely reported that Miami’s legendary Coconut Grove Playhouse had closed. We were the first to report on Thursday morning that the Playhouse was actually not going to close. However, the leaders and staff of the Coconut Grove Playhouse must take fast, and passionate action, to make sure the Playhouse is never in danger of truly shutting down. More about that shortly.
There are many ironies in this story. It was just a few precious days ago, Monday, April 10, that Arnold Mittelman, the Playhouse’s Chief Executive Officer and Producing/Artistic Director was given the Carbonell’s (South Florida equivalent to the Tony award) George Abbott Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Arts. This happened two days before the ‘Closed’ sign was placed at the theater."
