DAVID RODWIN: Miami Madness

TEASER

“Jam packed with jokes… Every diversion is entertaining… An impressively dense story feels whimsical and moves along swiftly. The twists and turns never fail to surprise and captivate… The storytelling here is meticulously organized and confidently told. The journey is endlessly fascinating and equally idiotic, an ideal combination.” – Theater Reviews From My Seat

“Stunning stories” The Young-Howze Theatre Journal

About

The Moth champion, David Rodwin (who brought you F*ck Tinder: a love story) is back with another hysterical story so crazy you know it must be real.

At the end of the pandemic, Rodwin was hired to write a musical about the history of Miami. To be staged on a boat. Owned by a Russian oligarch. Produced by a guy who sold timeshares. And shockingly… the endeavor unravels in spectacular fashion – like every real Miami story.

Come hear the real tale of how Rodwin fell in love with the history of Miami despite its rabidly anti-Semitic founding fathers. And how he connected with his family history when he discovers his great-grandfather was one of the 'Binder Boys' who fomented the great Florida land rush that ended in a real estate bubble that makes the 2008 financial crisis look like child's play.

Throw in a producer obsessed with shoehorning in a drag queen as the narrator, insistent on including scenes with "Indians" dressed like an X-rated Disney cartoon and who becomes infatuated with a love story between a black panther and a sexy manatee that was intended by Rodwin as an absurdist joke... and we get pure madness, as only Miami can deliver.
