About Brévo Theatre:
Brévo Theatre is an incorporated 501(c)(3), created by Zaylin Yates and his business partner, Terrence Pride during their time as students at Florida A&M University. One of the productions they are most proud of incorporated a highly successful and student-funded dinner theater performance of “Kissing the Blarney Stone,” which paved the way for the duo to continue to produce shows that challenge modern-day theater while showcasing and developing local talent in unconventional performances. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Brévo Theatre produced a series of virtual dance videos that interpreted acts of racial injustice, entitled “Protest Art,” commissioned by the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. Most recently, Brévo Theatre produced “American Son,” the Broadway play by Christopher Demos-Brown. The Brévo-produced rendition was sponsored by Miami Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, and included a live and in-person conversation with well-known playwright and Miami native, Mr. Demos-Brown entitled “2 Shades of Black: An Exploration of Biracial Identity.” Brévo Theatre’s goal is to provide a platform to the unheard by highlighting up-and-coming playwrights, actors, dancers and directors, by offering a diverse entertainment experience through color-blind casting.
