The newest black-box theater in Miami opened its doors a couple of months ago on 7329 Collins Ave, Miami Beach. The brainchild of Artistic Director Cynthia Joyce Clay and her husband, Guillermo Ramon, The Storycrafter Studio has an art gallery front that opens to an intimate black box theater, making it quite unique.
Cynthia Joyce Clay sees her black-box theater as a cozy, “happening place” with couches, easy chairs, bar stools for seating. An honors graduate of Brandeis University, Clay and her husband, Guillermo Ramon, a graduate of The Ohio State University, have long had a dream of opening a black box theater where comedy nights, open mic, and poetry jams would happen the months we are in rehearsal with plays.. “Some men buy themselves a dream car, a Porsche or a jaguar. I sold mine to open a theater,” quips Ramon.
Our next play will consist of two Halloween One-Acts, The first one-act is adapted from Garcia Lorca’s short play by Cynthia Joyce Clay, “The Romance of Belisa and Don Perloba in the Moonlit Garden.” The second one-act is by Miami playwright Guillermo Ramon, “When I Was Alive.” The plays will be shown from Oct. 17 through Nov. 10, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8:00 PM and Sundays at 3:00 PM.
