Brévo Theatre is an incorporated 501(c)(3) organization, founded by Zaylin Yates and his business partner, Terrence Pride, during their time as students at Florida A&M University. Brévo Theatre has produced numerous successful shows, including most recently Tarell Alvin McCraney’s “The Brothers Size” in partnership with Island City Stage, and closed out their first season in 2022 with “Funnyhouse of a Negro” by Adrienne Kennedy. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Brévo Theatre produced a series of virtual dance videos titled "Protest Art," which explored acts of racial injustice, where one video entitled “Hope For Tomorrow” was commissioned by the Adrienne Arsht Center. Additionally, Brévo Theatre produced "American Son," a Broadway play by Christopher Demos-Brown, and featured the Miami playwright in a talkback entitled “2 Shades of Black: An Exploration of Biracial Identity”. Throughout their seasons, Brévo Theatre received sponsorship from the Miami Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, OurFund Foundation, The Miami Foundation, Radical Partners, Broward Cultural Division and the Florida Department of State. Brévo Theatre strives to provide a platform for up-and-coming playwrights, actors, dancers, and directors, offering a diverse and inclusive entertainment experience.
