Loxen Productions Expands Mission with Launch of Loxen Entertainment, Inc.

Loxen Productions, LLC, the South Floridabased theatrical production company that commenced operations in 2019, announced today the launching of a new company that will operate as a not-for-profit corporation in support of Loxen Productions and its mission. Loxen Entertainment, Inc. has been incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation in the State of Florida and has made the necessary filings with the Internal Revenue Service for a Determination Letter confirming its status as a tax-exempt charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.

“We feel that, through the creation of a not-for-profit corporation that shares Loxen Productions’ mission of improving the artistic standard of our community, we can further support the shared goal of providing work opportunities not only to actors and other theater craftspeople, but to

artists in general,” said Benjamin León IV, Tony ® -nominated Broadway producer and founder and President of the new company. “There should be no reason to have to go to New York, London or any other world capital to find good theater. ‘Good theater’ is done by ‘good artists’, and that can be found right here in South Florida.”

Loxen Productions, LLC has become an important contributor to the arts community in South Florida through its high-quality productions of musicals during the past five years. Its productions of In the Heights, Cabaret, Little Shop of Horrors, The 25 th Annual Putnam Spelling Bee and Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein have received high praise from critics and audiences alike for their production values and artistic excellence. The company has presented

its shows at a variety of venues such as the Ziff Opera House at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Downtown Miami, and the historic ARTime Theater in Southwest Miami.

Loxen Entertainment, Inc. also announced the members of its board of directors: Benjamin León IV, Founder and President; Benjamin León III, Vice President; Gonzalo Rodríguez, Artistic Director/General Manager; Jim Kierstead, Executive Director/Director of Development; and Daniel Hernández, Consultant. “Our new board is looking forward to working with other artists in the area in a variety of endeavors that will continue to shape the artistic landscape of our community,” said Mr. Leon IV.

“Our 2024 season is shaping up as our most ambitious to date,” said Gonzalo Rodríguez, Artistic Director of the organization. “We are preparing the current off-Broadway hit comedy The Play That Goes Wrong, the hilarious musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone, and the family favorite Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We are also bringing our acclaimed production of Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein to the Ziff Opera House at the Adrienne Arsht Center in October. We will also present a gala concert showcasing the music from some of the most popular video games. The concert will feature a symphony orchestra and will be held at the James L. Knight Concert Hall at the Adrienne Arsht Center in the summer.”

Final dates and venues for the 2024 season are being finalized and will soon be announced on
