Mondays are Dark

Here's your Monday reading list!

The Miami Theatre Examiner tells about The Marvelous Wondrettes, the season opener for Actors' Playhouse.  You can also read up on it at

Beau Higgins at tells us about the national tour of Fiddler on the Roof, coming to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts next month.  Hans Zarkoff Topol is featured as Tevye, who is neither a fiddler, nor does he get on the roof.

Hap Erstein of the Palm Beach ArtsPaper discusses Caldwell Theatre's upcoming concert version of Sunday in the Park with George.  Sondheim/Lapin collaboration is adored by musical theatre fans, but the production requirements are prohibitive for any regional theatre to take on.  It's easy to lose money on even a successful production, if the production's budget is bigger than ticket sales can off-set.  That's even given the fact that most of the budget would have to be covered by donations.  But if the concert sells...who knows...

Mission Paradox points out that while some non-profits do run themselves "like a business," they may not have examined all the different approaches to running a business.  Food for thought.

Meanwhile... in Palm Beach...
...the Royal Poinciana Playhouse is still closed.
