TRANSFORMING THE PARKER
ACT II: TRANSFORMING PARKER PLAYHOUSE
The curtain rose for the first time at Parker Playhouse in February 1967. It was the opening of Act I of Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple, but it also represented the first act for a new theater ushering in an era of cultural development in South Florida.
Now, more than 50 years later, it is time for Act II at Parker Playhouse. In 2017, a $30 million capital campaign was introduced to fund the Parker’s second act. In two short years, thanks to the generosity of more than 300 donors big and small, this fundraising goal was exceeded and construction was begun in Spring 2019.
