In the summer of 2014, some theater enthusiasts signed a lease for a salon de
fiestas, or party hall, on Avenida Independencia, installed upholstered chairs,
theatrical lighting, and a stage, and created the San Miguel Playhouse. The
theater opened its doors for its first production, Moonlight and Magnolias, in

October 2014. Four years later, the playhouse had hosted more than twenty full
theatrical productions, and an even greater number of concerts, readings, and
benefits. In 2017, a supertitle system was installed, and a Spanish‐language
production of Long Day’s Journey Into Night, with English supertitles, ushered in a
new era of community‐uniting bilingual theater. Highlights of the four years of the
playhouse include the immensely popular Diez Minutos festival of ten‐minute
plays; comedies such as the rollicking farce The 39 Steps; musicals like Little Shop
of Horrors; bracing dramas such as Red, and the acclaimed Latin American
premiere of The Madres, a new play about the military dictatorship in Argentina.
Incontrovertibly, in four years, the San Miguel Playhouse has become the city’s
most significant cultural institution for high‐quality theater.

Now, however, the institution is in peril. The lease has expired on the playhouse building,
and the institution known as the San Miguel Playhouse must deal with the real possibility
of eviction. A group of business professionals with a love of theater is launching a capital
campaign to preserve this important cultural institution.
