Mondays are dark

Hope you had a chance to enjoy the wonderful weather over the weekend.  And I hope you got out to see some of the wonderful productions playing in South Florida.

Don't forget; Aisle Say, with Hap Erstein and Bill Hirschman, today at 2pm on WRPB iRadio.

Mo' Mamet, Mo' Mamet, Mo' Mamet!
Alliance Theatre Lab is selling out Sexual Perversity in Chicago, one of Mamet's early works. GableStage had a successful run of Speed The Plow, which gave Madonna her Broawdway debut a quarter century ago. Caldwell just opened his adaptation of The Voysey Inheritance, one of his most recent pieces.  Now from  BroadwayWorld we learn that Palm Beach DramaWorks has announced that Dennis Creaghan and Matt Meuller will star in American Buffalo, opening February 17, 2010. Is there some Asian calendar we haven't heard of that declared this "The season of Mamet?"  Not that I'm complaining. 

20 years ago, I had the good fortune to see Gordon McConnell, Ray Smith, and Chuck Winkler perform this at the Actors' Rep.  I'm looking forward to seeing Creaghan and Meuller.

Comic Effect
Comic as in comic book, not comedic effect.  Naked Stage's new play, Macon City: A Comic Book Play gets a write up in the Drama Queen.

Wee Wednesdays
Florida Stage's playwright in residence will be writing a series of plays: once a week, on Wednesdays.  The catch?  They'll be on Twitter, and subject to the 140 character limit, and I don't mean the roles.

More than Zero
Recent South Floridian Jim Brochu opens his one man show Zero Hour Off-Broadway.  Read about it in Playbill and

The Playground
That's Lex's Playground, not the theatre.  She's reviewed several recent productions, and they are worth reading.  A certain fashion editor should take notes.

The Royal Poinciana Playhouse is still closed.
