What Makes Her Haute: She made headlines in 2008 when she pledged $30 million to Miami’s Performing Arts Center, thereby renaming it the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County. Her success as the chairman of TotalBank allowed for such a generous, philanthropic gesture.

What Makes Her Haute Now: The award winning musical stage play “Dreamgirls” premiered at the Adrienne Arsht Center in downtown Miami. “Dreamgirls” is the story of a 1960s girl group’s highs and lows on their road to super-stardom. Starring Miami native Syesha Mercado as Deena Jones, Adrienne Warren as Lorrell Robinson and Moya Angela as Effie White, “Dreamgirls” is showing now through Sunday, Oct. 24.

The Arsht Center is no stranger to Broadway as Tony-nominated Raúl Esparza is set to perform for the Performing Arts Benefit on Thursday, Oct. 28.
