Great Gables Events – weekend of November 16

Greetings,

Thanksgiving approaches. It’s time for families and friends to gather and celebrate the bounty that we must not take for granted. We certainly have much to be thankful for this season. Enjoy some time off the grid by choosing some relaxing and entertaining opportunities in the coming days.

While we’re away on the annual East Caribbean Rum Cruise, the Great Gables Events Calendar newsletter will be on hiatus.

We wish a joyous Happy Holidays for one and all.

Last Weekend for Havana Music Hall
Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle TheatreDon’t miss the final curtain for Actors’ Playhouse production of Havana Music Hall at the Miracle Theater this weekend. An exciting world premiere, Havana Music Hall reflects the pulse of our community with its irresistible musical beat and heartwarming story centering on Cuban musicians Rolando and Ramona Calderon, and their lives in Cuba from 1958 to the present. Just as their local Havana band is about to get its big break, the Revolution tears apart the only world the duo have ever known. This moving and relevant new musical explores the challenges and joys of one family’s 50-year odyssey for survival, presenting a journey which immigrants of all cultures from around the world have traveled for generations. https://www.actorsplayhouse.org/

Plan Ahead – Nov 24 – Actually at GableStage
GableStage TheatreTwo freshmen at Princeton spend a night together that alters the course of their lives. They agree on the drinking, they agree on the attraction, but consent is foggy– and if unspoken, can it be called consent? A funny, witty and lyrical investigation into gender and race politics, our desire to fit in and the three sides to every story. GableStage is located at the Biltmore Hotel, 1200 Anastasia Ave. Call 305-445-1119. http://www.gablestage.org

Great Gables Events – weekend of November 2

Greetings,

Yes, the Fall season has arrived and we’ve tasted cool weather. With Halloween in the rear view mirror, we move toward Election Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, Repeal Day and the big holiday season.

For those so inclined, early voting is a convenient and efficient process. Kudos to all those that take this constitutional privilege and civic responsibility seriously. In addition to the election of officials, there are numerous state and county amendments to consider. Do your homework and make the commitment.

The coming days are filed with delightful events — something for everyone. Take some time to enjoy the good life in Coral Gables with family and friends. We hope the following ridiculous list of cultural opportunities will inspire and inform.
