For just shy of three weeks this May, Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Center will stage Betrayal as part of its Theater Up Close series. Epic stories, outstanding music, and fantastical or dynamic characters define the productions featured in this South Florida theater event, and Harold Pinter’s famed play is no exception.
Betrayal tells the story of Emma and Jerry, two lovers whose affair has long-evaded their spouses, family, and friends. This extraordinary meditation on the complex nature of attraction and loyalty has gained critical acclaim since its premiere at London’s National Theatre in the late seventies. The play earned the Olivier Award for Best New Play in 1979.
Bringing such a lauded play to Miami is consistent with the highbrow agenda of the Adrienne Arsht Center. From Broadway in Miami to Theater Up Close, this spectacular organization is making high-quality theater common in a city that was deprived of it for so many years. The Adrienne Arsht Center is also home to the Flamenco Festival, Miami Symphony Orchestra, and other noteworthy performers and productions.
To experience the magical storytelling behind Betrayal, grab tickets now for the show’s seventeen-day run. During the first half of the month, the Adrienne Arsht Center will host a variety of other shows including performances by the Florida Grand Opera and the Miami Symphony Orchestra.
