Benjamin León IV is a man on a mission.
His ultimate goal? “To elevate South Florida’s theater and arts scene to national and international prominence.”
Just who is this 23-year-old dynamo who harbors such an intense love of theater and a drive to upgrade Miami’s performance capability?
When Slow Burn Theatre Company’s artistic director/choreographer Patrick Fitzwater welcomed the audience to his inaugural show of their 2023/2024 season, he asked how many of us had seen INTO THE WOODS before. Most hands went up. Obviously, Stephen Sondheim’s (music and lyrics) and James Lapine’s (book) two-time, Tony-award winner (for both new production and best musical revival) had a large South Florida fan base. Could Broward Center’s local regional professional theater live up to the memories of traveling shows or even Broadway? Fitzwater seemed to think so, going so far as to call this production their “most beautiful show ever”… though you might recall their last season boasted one groundbreaking blockbuster after another.
FORT LAUDERDALE – The Broward Center for the Performing Arts once again presents a season with a variety of accessibility options that help make attending live performing arts enjoyable and inclusive for everyone.
