Microtheater Miami: Dynamic Wednesdays
MicroTheater Miami welcomes improvisation to its stages for the first time every Wednesday from 8 pm to 11 pm.
Dynamic is the newest addition to MicroTheater Miami’s English programming, and will feature some of the top improv players from the South Florida community presenting shows that mix the art of unscripted theater with the venue’s unique format, using the small container stages as a platform to tell humorous and dramatic stories based on the suggestions of the attendees.
Microtheater is an innovative theatrical format consisting in the representation of small plays, 15 minutes long each, for a small number of spectators (no more than 15), performed in a small space (room) in which the audience experiences a close interaction with the actors. In English and in Spanish involving all theatrical genre.

Miamah Comedy presents
- Truth, Lies, and Monopoly
- Directed by: Kristy Webb
- Join Miamah Comedy as we put the “fun” in “dysfunctional”! We use your suggestion to fuel the drama of a game night gone wrong. Monopoly is a game that starts with all the players trying to buy as much property as possible and ends with everyone silently hating their loved ones for trying to dick them over in the pursuit of more fake money! Tears will be shed, tempers will rise and laughter will be had by all (in the audience at least). What do you expect from a game with the slogan “Own it All”?
