MIAMI, FL (WEDNESDAY, JULY 3, 2024) – Loxen Entertainment, Inc., the not-for-profit theater company founded in 2019 whose mission is creating new and exciting work opportunities to members the artistic community residing in South Florida, announced today its upcoming productions for 2024-2025. In addition, the company also announced a new location for its presentations: the historic Colony Theatre on Lincoln Road. The upcoming season offerings include “The Play That Goes Wrong”, the smash hit comedy that is still running in London and New York; “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, the enchanting musical stage version of Roald Dahl’s beloved classic starring everyone’s favorite candyman Willy Wonka; and the hilarious Tony Award-winning musical farce “The Drowsy Chaperone”.

 

“We are beyond excited to announce what we have lined up for our audiences this year,” said Benjamin Leon IV, Tony®-nominated Broadway producer and founder and president of the company. “And what makes it extra special is that we will be presenting our shows at one of the best and most respected venues in our city: the beautiful Colony Theatre. I am grateful to Miami New Drama, the theater’s managing company, for trusting Loxen to uphold the excellent track record they have established through the years.”

 

Loxen has become an important contributor to the arts community in South Florida through its high-quality productions of musicals during the company’s first five years. Its productions of In the Heights, Cabaret, Little Shop of Horrors, The 25th Annual Putnam Spelling Bee and Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein have received high praise from critics and audiences alike for their production values and artistic excellence. The company has presented its shows at a variety of venues such as the Ziff Opera House at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Downtown Miami, and the ARTime Theater in Southwest Miami.

 

Starting in September, Loxen will be presenting all their shows at the Colony Theatre, one of Miami’s oldest and most esteemed venues located at 1040 Lincoln Road in the heart of Miami Beach. “The Play That Goes Wrong” by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields, runs September 5th through the 22nd. The hilarious comedy follows the misadventures of an amateur theatre troupe that comes together once a year to stage a show. Unfortunately, things go very wrong during the performance with uproarious results. The Olivier and Tony Award-winning show has been running since 2012 in London, and since 2017 in New York. “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, the musical adaptation of the 1964 children's novel of the same name by Roald Dahl, with book by David Greig, music by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Shaiman and Scott Wittman opens December 13th through the 22nd. It tells the tale of Charlie Bucket, an imaginative boy who dreams of acquiring a golden ticket to tour Willy Wonka's over-the-top chocolate factory and can't believe his luck when it actually happens. The rest is pure imagination and joy for the entire family. “The Drowsy Chaperone”, the Tony Award-winning musical with music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, and a book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar, runs February 28th through March 9th. The screwball plot concerns a musical theater fan who, feeling "blue", decides to play for the audience an LP of his favorite musical. As the record plays, the show - a parody of 1920s American musical comedy - comes to life onstage, as the man wryly comments on the music, story and actors.
