A World Premiere by Nilo Cruz
Miami-Dade County Auditorium Black Box Theatre
2901 W. Flagler Street, Miami, FL 33135
OPENING NIGHT: Thursday, November 18, 2021 at 8:00 p.m.
PROGRAM: Pulitzer-Prize-winning Cuban-American playwright Nilo Cruz pays homage to Miami, his part-time hometown, with Hotel Desiderium, a love story set on South Beach. This world premiere is a production of ARCA Images with dialogue in English and simultaneous audio translation in Spanish. Learn more about first-time FAN Grantee Arca Images at www.arcaimages.org.
Hotel Desiderium explores the stormy relationship between three young artists who forget reality as they plunge headlong into unexpected love. One is an immigrant from Latin America. Two others have lost their way as artists and have come to Miami for inspiration at an art festival. The story, Cruz says, involves misfits, the underestimation of immigrants, physical blindness, and those who can see but have no vision.
Playwright Nilo Cruz will stage and direct the play.
