Mondays are Dark.

Here's your Monday reading list.  And don't forget: Aisle Say at 2pm on WRPB iRadio.

Where Do Plays Come From?
We find out on a Very Special edition of 1st Draft

And Then They Get Read
The Drama Queen tells us about upcoming play readings, including Conundrum Stages, GableStage, and GableStage again.

And Then Produced

Palm Beach ArtsPaper talks with Seth Rozin about his 2 Jews Walk Into A Bar..., now  playing at Florida Stage (and not his own theater in Philadelphia).

And Performed

Avi Hoffman talks about creating a role for a world premiere play at a theatre he's wanted to work at with an actor he's wanted to work with, on 1st Draft.
The thrill of discovering the nuances of a character that has never been played, the exhilaration of finding the ins and outs of who, what, where and why of a character, and the insecurity of learning whether the audience will ‘get it’ and go along for the ride.
And then....Filmed?
Drama, Daily ponders the merits of filming stage productions.
...decades ago Americans used to watch theatre on TV.  The phenomenon of filming theatre sounds almost like an oxymoron.  Perhaps it feels more palatable to think of it is as “preserving,” rather than “filming” or “taping” liveness?
Coming Soon, to an Arts Center Near You...
The Walworth Farce opens this week at the Adriene Arsht Center for the Performing Arts; read about it in the Miami Herald, or read about it on BroadwayWorld.Com.  You can also read about Legally Blonde: The Musical, which tells us is "graduating to the Broward Center."  A little favoritism there, Beau?

Coming Soon to the Caldwell...
Read about Caldwell Theatre's upcoming production of David Mamet's adaptation of The Voysey Inheritance at

In Case You Missed It... I did, Mary Damiano recaps the recent anniversary party, at which the MiamiArtzine Visionary Award was bestowed upon Ed Bell, Dana Keith, Meredith Lasher, Marcy Lefton, and Karen Peterson.  She also mentions that Arts at St. Johns is presenting play readings tonight, as well as the aforementioned Conundrum Stage project on Friday.  All that, and much more.
