The show features brand new songs, a completely new set and environment for the Blue Men, never-before-seen instruments and audience interaction alongside iconic and beloved BLUE MAN GROUP moments. The result is a new show that remains steeped in collective joy, creation, music, humor, and connection.

  • Audiences can look forward to newly constructed and remastered instruments including:
    • The Tonemill: a rotating wheel of plastic tubes the Blue Men play with boom whackers to make sounds. Inspired by a child’s pinwheel, originally sketched on a napkin, the Tonemill has a mesmerizing effect when played and will be used in a brand-new piece in the North American Tour called “Galaxymaker.”
  • Original new songs and scenes include:
    • “Data Collection”: a new song that integrates live-captured audience samples and transforms them into a music.
    • “Signal to Noise”: a Blue Man social dance, inspired by their playing and the audience.
    • “Face-not-a-Face”: a scene that plays on contemporary facial recognition software.

Tickets start at $25*

Ziff Ballet Opera House

 

Miami, FL – April 20, 2022 – The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County (@arshtcenter) is proud to announce its first JUNETEENTH JUKE JOINT, a community celebration of Black freedom and culture. 

Inspired by the vibe created by the backwoods, roadside establishments run and patronized by Black Americans in the years after slavery ended, the JUNETEENTH JUKE JOINT will transform the Arsht Center’s Peacock Foundation Studio into a one-night-only hotspot for dancing, live music, cocktails and celebrating with neighbors and friends. The night will feature pan-African beats by DJ Nickymix (@nickymix) followed by the soulful sounds of Miami-based R&B singer LaVie (@laviemusic), whose performance will take the audience on a journey through the rich history of Black music, featuring soul, blues, R&B and everything in between.

 

 Audiences ages 18+ are encouraged to arrive as soon as doors open at 6:30 p.m. to enjoy a specially curated menu featuring delicious soul food-inspired bites and libations for those 21 and over. The $15 menu will include southern favorites, including BBQ, fried chicken wings, mac and cheese, sweet potato fritters, banana pudding, and red velvet shooters. Vegetarian/vegan options and a full bar will be available for purchase all evening.

 General admission tickets to the JUNETEENTH JUKE JOINT are available for $25. VIP tables are available from $100 for two guests and include guaranteed premium cabaret-style seating and two cocktails.  Tickets may be purchased beginning today at the Adrienne Arsht Center box office by calling (305) 949-6722, or online at arshtcenter.org.

 

The JUNETEENTH JUKE JOINT is made possible with the support of presenting sponsor Bank of America and media sponsor Outclique Magazine.

 The Juneteenth holiday commemorates the effective end of slavery, when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas on June 19, 1865 to free enslaved people. For generations, Juneteenth has been celebrated with gatherings, cookouts, music, laughter and pride in Black freedom.

 The JUNETEENTH JUKE JOINT is part of the Arsht Center’s The Heritage Project, which was created with a commitment to promote social equality and amplify Black voices. The Arsht Center celebrates Black artists throughout our community through The Heritage Project’s salon series, Heritage Fest and other special events all year long.

The Broadway season got supercharged!”

DISNEY’S ALADDIN

WICKED, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle.  Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”

From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, WICKED—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story that USA Today cheers is “a complete triumph! An original musical that will make you laugh, cry, and think.”

MY FAIR LADY

March 28 – April 2, 2023

From Lincoln Center Theater that brought you The King & I and South Pacific, comes “a sumptuous new production of the most perfect musical of all time” (Entertainment Weekly), Lerner & Loewe’s MY FAIR LADY.  Director Bartlett Sher’s glowing production is “thrilling, glorious and better than it ever was” (New York Times).  “Every so often a revival comes along that reminds you how indispensable great theater can be” (NY1).

Boasting such classic songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” and “On the Street Where You Live,” MY FAIR LADY tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.”  But who is really being transformed?

AIN’T TOO PROUD: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS

May 9-14, 2023

AIN’T TOO PROUD – THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS is the electrifying, new smash-hit Broadway musical that follows The Temptations’ extraordinary journey from the streets of Detroit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. With their signature dance moves and silky-smooth harmonies, they rose to the top of the charts creating an amazing 42 Top Ten Hits with 14 reaching number one.

Nominated for 12 Tony® Awards and the winner of the 2019 Tony Award for Best Choreography, Ain’t Too Proud tells the thrilling story of brotherhood, family, loyalty, and betrayal, as the group’s personal and political conflicts threatened to tear them apart during a decade of civil unrest in America. 

Written by three-time Obie Award winner Dominique Morisseau, directed by two-time Tony Award winner Des McAnuff (Jersey Boys), and featuring the Tony-winning choreography of Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, On Your Feet!), the unforgettable story of this legendary quintet is set to the beat of the group’s treasured hits, including “My Girl,” “Just My Imagination,” “Get Ready,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” and so many more.
