Seating will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis at will call.
The Adrienne Arsht Center provides a grandiose setting for Summer Shorts, a gut-busting showcase of seven of America’s freshest short plays. Having swept Broadway, cabarets, and the silver screen, former star of Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and metrosexual makeover guru Jai Rodriguez headlines the collection of deliriously paced vignettes chock-full of five-minute rib-ticklers and bawdy 20-minute farces. Melding Jai’s magnetism with City Theatre’s stable of lauded actors and seven snappy scripts, Summer Shorts takes audiences on a brisk ride from the comfort of a fully seated, optionally upright position.
