Join us next week at the City of Miami Commission’s final hearing on Thursday, April 25th and support the County-FIU Playhouse plan! We are appealing to the unfair and unfortunate action of the City of Miami’s Historic and Environmental Preservation Board which denied the County’s application to move forward with plans to revitalize the Coconut Grove Playhouse.

This is the deciding moment for the future of the Playhouse and the revitalization of downtown Coconut Grove. If the City Commission approves the County’s appeal, the County is ready to submit the Playhouse project’s architectural plans for a building permit. After years of work and exhaustive research, renovation and construction are ready to begin. Thoughtful historic preservation, a village-friendly design, and great theater can return to this important site.
