Polar Opposites Attract The Whipping Man and CANNIBAL; the Musical (live on stage) have been enjoying such packed houses that the producers of each play decided to extend. But talk about polar opposites; one is a tightly scripted drama, the other a sophomoric spoof on musical comedies. Even the producing companies are at opposite ends of the spectrum: Caldwell Theatre Company is one of South Florida's oldest regional theatres operating from its third facility, The Promethean Theatre is a scrappy newcomer working out of a university black box. And yet both plays have drawn in record crowds.

The good news is that you have an extra week to see both shows; the better news is that there are still a lot of seats available during the extension weeks.

Which one should you see? Do what I did: see them both. They're both worth it.
