South Beach Babylonby Michael McKeever
Commercialism and artistic integrity battle it out as a group of South Beach artists prepares for the celebrated Art Basel event. Is it possible to create art without selling one’s soul?
A wickedly funny, sexy new play from South Florida’s most celebrated playwright.
Stimulating, Entertaining and funny
