Description:

When Barbara Stein co-founded the Actors’ Playhouse at a suburban strip mall in Kendall, she had no idea that it would  grow to become one of South Florida’s premiere theaters – bringing in acts from experienced Broadway legends to up-and-coming playwrights.

Now housed at the Miracle Theater in Coral Gables, the Playhouse brings in more than 150,000 attendees a year and spurs area nightlife.

“The city was wise, and we had a great opportunity,” Ms. Stein said. “They knew of our reputation artistically. They knew of the people behind the organization and the community leaders. They knew that they could count on everything being followed through, which is the greatest respect we could have wanted.”

As executive producing director, Ms. Stein works to pull funds and audiences to the Playhouse. With the theater’s annual operating budget and in-kind donations totaling $4 million, Ms. Stein said that she is working to ensure that future generations enjoy the historic cultural facility.

“We belong to the community,” she said. “We ask from the community. We give back to the community and we want to be there for the community forever.”

Ms. Stein discussed the history of the Actors’ Playhouse, as well as her plans for the facility’s future, with Miami Today staff writer Ashley Hopkins at the theater on Miracle Mile.
