2014 Best Play Tony-nominee, Mother and Sons, by the 4-time Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally, is funny and powerful. The play portrays a woman who pays an unexpected visit to the New York apartment of her late son's partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. Values clash as they struggle to reconcile their vastly different worlds. This is a timely and provocative new work that explores our evolving understanding of family in today's world. Performances at GableStage are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 and 7 p.m. No performances on September 25 and October 3, but added performances on September 24 and October 1. Tickets range from $42.50 to $55, and student tickets are available on Thursday and Sunday evenings.

The Miami Design District will resume its Site Specific Performance Series for the 2014-2015 edition. The interactive evening will feature 20-minute performances at three specific sites in the Design District. The evening will begin with Rebel Yell, at 8 p.m., a performance piece that is as much a comment on the construction of performance art as it is a shout against the deplorable treatment of migrant workers constructing Qatar’s World Cup stadium. Created by Paul Tei, Jessica Farr, Steph Taylor, Carey Hart and Elayne Bryan, and directed by Paul Tei, Mad Cat Theatre Company. At 8:30, Peter and the Starcatcher, presented in partnership with UM Department of Theatre Arts, will be at The Garden Building. Winner of five Tony Awards, Rick Elice’s Peter and the Starcatcher is the innovative and imaginative play with music based on the best-selling novel by Miami native Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. In this high-flying adventure, twelve actors play more than 100 unforgettable characters – plus most of the scenery and furniture – in an exhilarating journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up? And at 9 p.m. The Garden Building's Rooftop is the site for SpeakFridays. Creator Robert Lee's (pictured) SpeakFridays, an underground gem in the heart of the Bird Road Art District, offers freedom, creativity, love, inclusion and expression. It's a place where artists and lovers of art congregate to inspire and be inspired, to share ideas and opinions, to commune. Enjoy dinner or drinks in the Miami Design District before or after Site Specific Performance Series!

Siudy Between Worlds Entre Mundos, a first-of-its-kind Flamenco fantasia created by Latin Grammy-nominee Pablo Croce and the internationally celebrated Siudy, will explore a new form of story-telling that incorporates the raw emotive power of Flamenco dancing with pulse-pounding, cross cultural dance and percussion. The new 2014 edition of Between Worlds comes to the Arsht Center with renovated lighting design and special guest artist Antonio Canales! Between Worlds bursts through artistic and cultural boundaries as 22 performers from around the globe drum and dance in a kinetic and provocative blend of Flamenco, urban dance and percussion to create a multi-sensory theatrical experience. The performance features George Akram (“Bernardo” in West Side Story on Broadway) and Flamenco guitarist Jose Luis Rodriguez. Between Worlds fuses the flair of Flamenco with the vigor of Riverdance and the heart-pounding rhythms of Stomp, making this powerful performance an exciting experience for all ages. Performances are Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 6 p.m. Tickets range from $35 to $135.

The 4th Annual Turkish Film Festival will return to Miami for 3 days of free screenings of four Turkish films that represent the best Turkish Cinema has to offer. This year's films include: On Tuesday, Only You, directed by Hakan Yonat, the love story of Hazal, a visually disabled young woman and Ali, a former boxer. On Wednesday, a pair films - Oh Brother, directed by Kemal Uzun, a hilarious comedy adventure about three friends attempting to turn their lives around only to find themselves in a whole heap of trouble; and Love Me, co-directed by Marina Gorbach and Mehmet Bahadie Er, an idiosyncratic comedy-drama sprinkled with hilarious notes of cultural clashes and endearing displays of kindness. And on Thursday, the festival will close with My World, directed by Ugur Yucel, an inspirational drama about a devoted teacher who helps a deaf and blind girl to live with her disabilities. Aside from remarkable films, the Festival will welcome a number of film celebrities and Turkish officials.
