7 Deadly Sins

Seven Deadly Sins, a collection of short plays, was presented in six storefronts along the 1100 block of Lincoln Road, as well as at the Colony Theatre’s loading dock.

For all of the effective ways arts groups have sustained themselves and their audiences with digital productions, Hausmann and managing director Nicholas Richberg have remained focused on how to return safely to live performances.

…and the show was a success.


Moises Kaufman’s “greed” entry was one of the most popular, All I Want is Everything!! It’s set at the funeral of a patriarch, in which the deceased’s children, played by Gerald McCullouch and Mia Matthews, discuss their potential inheritance.

Mia Matthews is an actress and producer, known for Dream Killer (2019), Every Witch Way (2014) and Home by Spring (2018). Mother of Bianca Matthews, with whom she starred with in Every Witch Way (2014) and Annabelle Hooper and the Ghosts of Nantucket (2016).

McCullouch embodies every avaricious corporate vulture we love to hate, stereo-typically cast as a straight white male (the enemy of all things in America), and Mia Matthews character Vivian is left to defend the legacy of the deceased, finding a more sentimental and emotional understanding and respect as she stands up for the late father.

On the surface it is easy to dismiss Miami New Drama and 7 Deadly Sins as another gut curdling Woke Hollywood Propaganda unit it is actually more then that, while there is some of that, there is also some high quality production genius there as well, the concept for the location and the ability to produce shows in that fashion is truly incredible.

THE COLONY THEATRE is located in the heart of South Beach on Lincoln Road. It first opened on January 25, 1935 as a Paramount Pictures movie house. Recently, the building underwent a three-year $6.5 million renovation to restore its original Art Deco grandeur and update its stage and technical equipment.

Today, the COLONY is a 417-seat state of the art venue proudly managed by Miami New Drama. Its impressive art deco design makes it one of the crown jewels of Miami Beach. The theatre hosts an exciting array of events, including music, dance, comedy, and theatre performances. The Colony Theatre is also home to Miami New Drama’s own exciting theatrical season.
