Written by Miami Today on June 14, 2012
The controversial Havana theater Company "Teatro El Público" presents "Caligula," the tyrant whose love devours everything. The play exposes Caligula’s weakness for masculine bodies and his intent to seduce and trample the innocence of Scipio. Others act as his game pawns, while everybody contributes in one way or another to a string of endless manipulations in this Havana-like Rome. 8 p.m. Additional performances through June 16. Colony Theater, 1040 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach. $25 seniors and students. $30 others. Details: (305) 674-1040 or www.fundarte.us or www.ticketmaster.com.
New Theatre presents the last play of the 2011-2012 season, "A Bicycle Country" by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Nilo Cruz.

Thurs-Sat 8 p.m. Sat. 1 p.m. and Sunday at 5:30 p.m. on June 17 and 24. Performances between June 8-24. Roxy Performing Arts Center, 1645 SW 107th Ave., Miami. $15 students. $35 Thursdays and Saturdays. $40 others. Details: (305) 443-5909 or www.new-theatre.org.
