This Friday, Saturday and Sunday at New Theater in Coral Gables, you have an opportunity to catch a once in a life time show – THE TONERS Live! For those of you not in the know, the Toners are a fictional Reggaeton band set on world super stardom. The play, brought to you by ForYouCanSee Theater and writers Alex Fumero, Lucas Leyva and Marco Ramirez, is a cross between a Max Fischer spectacular and Back to the Future by way of Hialeah. It follows the misadventures of a pair of hapless would-be musicians who accidentally travel back in time to the 2002, right to the start of the Reggaeton Boom. There, they face not-yet-ex-girlfriends, shady music producers and time travel paradoxes. Qué barbaridad!
As it says in the press release, this is not “a party, a play or a concert, it is a mutant, hybrid remix” of all three. Prior to the play, there’s an open bar serving Miami’s favorite drink, the CCCV – a mix of rum and Jupina, the delicious pineapple soda. Having seen the play myself, I can assure you it’s a charming and laugh-out-loud funny production made by Miami people for Miami people. And hell, it’s only $10.
The New Theatre is located at 4120 Laguna St.
