Mondays are Dark

Christine on Miss Saigon
With Actors' Playhouse opening up their biggest production of the year on Friday, Christine Dolen of the Miami Herald tells us all about it.

Christine on Blasted
The Miami Herald also has the story on the edgy new drama at GableStage.

So Bad, There Are No Words
On the blog How Was Your Day, Dan?, former reality tv star Dan Renzi writes about The Golden Gays. Or at least, he tries to:
I cannot tell you how stupid this show was, there are no words in the English language.
For this group to have the balls to put this show on stage and CHARGE PEOPLE MONEY, they must be some very arrogant fuckers.
This is the kind of show that kills theater.
This is coming from someone who worked on MTV's The Real World, so you know that he says this thing is awful, it just is.

Self Promotion
The Alliance Theatre Blog tells us about the company's upcoming reading of Johnna Adams' Angel Eaters.

Go For It
The Drama Queen points out that the Knight Arts Challenge hasn't granted much money to theatres, and thinks we should do something about that.

New Theatre in Town: SoBeArts
BroadwayWorld reports that the South Beach Institute of the Arts (SoBeArts) steps into the theatre scene with William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. Director Carson Kievman worked for Joe Papp, among other accomplishments. The cast includes Amy McKenna, Andrew Lefevre, and Ken Clement as Sir Toby Belch.

Why Theatre Will Fail in Palm Beach
The Shiny Sheet examines the village's town serving law. Short version: if your business is larger than 2,000 square feet, you have to prove that half your patrons are residents of the Village of Palm Beach. Stay west of the Lake.

Why The Grove Restoration Is In Trouble
The New Times blog Riptide reports that the City of Miami fired the guy who brought the USA tv series Burn Notice and the film Marley & Me to Miami. If they are stupid enough to fire a guy who not only brought all those jobs and all that revenue to Miami but placed Miami in tens of millions of living rooms around the planet, what chance is there that these chuckleheads will help a project that starts with a four million dollar debt and the destruction of a treasured local landmark? Especially in light of the current squabbling.
