Miki served as Managing Director of Contemporary Theatre of Dallas until its closure in 2016 following the deaths of Brian Loncar, and his daughter Grace. As a monument to the founders Brian and Sue Loncar, and the thousands of performing artists who worked at CTD over the years, we keep the website alive to honor their memories and their body of work.

Division Avenue was then produced in November-December 2013 at Contemporary Theatre of Dallas and produced by J-Town Playhouse in Jerusalem, Israel in February-March 2014.
