GableStage Artistic Director Joe Adler always manages to snag the rights to the hottest scripts. This time, it’s Lynn Nottage’s 2009 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, “Ruined,” opening this weekend at the company’s Biltmore hotel theater in Coral Gables.
Nottage traveled to war-torn Uganda to research the moving drama about the plight and hopeful resilience of women in a dark Congo brothel. Adler has tapped talented award-winning actors Marckenson Charles, Renata Eastlick and Lela Elam and the performance will be accompanied by live music featuring lyrics by Nottage. Performances run Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., through October 7. Tickets are $45-50. GableStage is located in the eastern wing of the Biltmore Hotel, 1200 Anastasia Ave. in Coral Gables. For tickets and more information, go to www.GableStage.org.
