The Coconut Grove Playhouse is an important part of Miami. Efforts are currently underway to save, preserve, and restore the theater, a historical landmark which has remained unused since 2006.
Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/02/2019 -- The Coconut Grove Playhouse was built in the late 1920s and it has remained in limbo since its 2006 closing. Miami-Dade County originally planned to restore the theater front while demolishing the larger auditorium to create a 300-seat theater. These plans have since been halted due to the requirements of upholding the theater's historic preservation as part of its National Register of Historic Places designation which it earned in 2018. City officials are seeking to restore the theater in its entirety.
There is a rich history attached to the Coconut Grove Playhouse. Besides its architecture, it was the first venue to host an American performance of Samuel Beckett's classic 1953 play Waiting for Godot. Television host David Letterman also aired an episode of his Late Night with David Letterman show at the theater in 1996.
