Miami New Drama presents Defacing Michael Jackson

April 2 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Thriller, the Pepsi fire, cocaine cowboys, and a white family moving into a black neighborhood: it’s 1984 and we are in Miami Dade County’s Opa-Locka and life is about to get a whole lot more confusing for a group of kids who want to be the ‘gloved one.’

Thriller, the Pepsi fire, cocaine cowboys, and a white family moving into a black neighborhood: it’s 1984 and we are in Miami Dade County’s Opa-Locka and life is about to get a whole lot more confusing for a group of kids who want to be the ‘gloved one.’ Defacing Michael Jackson is about growing up, hero worship, and how we see ourselves.Why Defacing Michael Jackson?

Why Defacing Michael Jackson?

Defacing Michael Jackson will be our fourth world premiere with Aurin Squire. He is not only a Miami native who is an extremely sought after screenwriter and playwright, he is a flagship for Miami New Drama and an essential part of our DNA. This play is all about Miami in Aurin’s native Opa Locka and blends a coming of age story and sexual discovery with a backdrop of social and racial unrest. It is deeply moving, spectacular with masterful storytelling. We are extremely proud to be doing the world premiere of this play and continue our commitment to  Aurin Squire as an artist.  – Michel Hausmann, Artistic Director.
