  1. Great blog! I have been reading your blog for sometime now and I find it to be the easiest way to keep up with everything that is going on in the South Florida theatre community.

    I do have one question that you might be able to help with. What is going on with some of the local theatre's web-pages? Most of the theatres do a good job with keeping up their pages but some theatres have not updated their pages in months. Promethean still has Cannibal The Musical on their page. and Naked Stage has under construction posted instead of their season. Are these theatres still in operation? I know Naked Stage just did a wonderful production of Macon City but what is next for this company? I love their work and don't want to miss anything either of these theatres produce.
