GableStage to Run Renovated Coconut Grove Playhouse

County commissioners approved more modest plans for playhouse

Article by the Real Deal

Coconut Grove PlayhouseThe GableStage theater company is set to take a lead role in operating the Coconut Grove Playhouse.

The nonprofit reportedly received unanimous approval from Miami-Dade County commissioners on Tuesday to operate a 300-seat theater at the playhouse. The group is currently housed in a 150-seat theater at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, and will move to the playhouse once its tax-funded renovations are completed, the Miami Herald reported.

The GableStage deal was rivaled by another group, which proposed plans for a 700-seat theater at the playhouse with famous actor Kevin Spacey coming on board, possibly as an artistic director. That faction, led by Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts chairman Mike Eidson, dropped out of the running after a county official convinced Eidson to postpone his plans, the Miami Herald reported.

But the county is keeping his proposal as an option. Commissioners voted to hire architecture firm Arquitectonica at the Tuesday meeting, and one of its directives was to investigate the possibility of building an additional 700-seat theater, the newspaper reported.

Some playhouse activists are advising the county not dismiss the Spacey version of the plan. The actor had a large part in reviving London’s Old Vic theater as its artistic director, and could bring in an array of acting big shots to the Grove Playhouse.

Miami praised for its air quality and organic food options

Article by the Real Deal

MiamiMiami was ranked as the fourth in a list of the 10 healthiest cities in the country, according to Livability.

The publication cited Miami’s low obesity rate — 12 percent below the national average — and the city’s plentiful exercise opportunities as reasons why Miami is a great place to live. There’s hiking in the Everglades National Park, biking along the 30-mile South Dade Trail, or canoeing on Oleta River.

MiamiOther factors that played into Miami’s top-5 spot was its high doctor-to-resident ratio, highly ranked healthcare, abundant options for eating organic food and good air quality, according to the list.

Minneapolis, Minnesota took the number one spot because of its park system, which covers 17 percent of the city, as well as low percentages of residents who smoke or are uninsured.

At the bottom of the list was Yonkers, New York, which was valued for its walkable neighborhoods and green program that recycles Styrofoam and fitted buildings with solar panels.
