Coconut Grove Playhouse

From 1927 until 2006, the Coconut Grove Playhouse was an entranceway to the neighborhood and a central hub for the area’s social activity. It was shuttered in disrepair.

$20 million in public funds have been set aside for its restoration, and in February 2015 Arquitectonica won the project.

Designs will be unveiled in summer 2016, after asbestos abatement has been completed and a determination between the original 1927 design or the 1956 renovation as the structure historically marked for preservation.

The county has chosen local theater company GableStage to run programming for the theatre; the company currently operates out of a 150-seat theater at the Biltmore Hotel.

A revived Coconut Grove Playhouse will be a boon to neighboring retail shops and restaurants, as well as an exciting educational opportunity for district schools. The local historic preservation community has made this project its top priority.
