Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre, 280 Miracle Mile, has announced Carbonell Award-winning playwright Michael McKeever’s Finding Mona Lisa as the fifth production of the 2016-17 Mainstage Season.
Finding Mona Lisa is one of the newest plays penned by the South Florida writer, and the final selection of the company’s 29th anniversary season. The show will run from July 12-Aug. 13, 2017.
Finding Mona Lisa explores the history of the world’s most famous painting, including Leonardo da Vinci’s meeting of Senora del Giocondo (Mona Lisa) and his masterful creation of her indelible countenance. This historical, funny and intriguing new piece presents highlights throughout the painting’s infamous past, including her vandalism, her theft, her journey to America (at the request of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy) and the various places she spent her storied lifespan, including hanging in Napoleon’s bedroom, before her final resting place at the Louvre.
This world premiere production joins four stellar shows already secured by Actors’ Playhouse for 2016-17. The lineup features a carefully curated selection of exciting new Tony Award-winning musicals and plays direct from Broadway, and one large-scale classic Broadway musical for which the company is acclaimed.
Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre’s 2016-17 Mainstage Season will include: Million Dollar Quartet, Oct. 19-Jan. 1, 2017; Carousel, Feb. 1 -26; All The Way, Mar. 22-Apr. 9; It Shoulda Been You, May 17-June 11, and Finding Mona Lisa, July 12-Aug. 13.
