Mondays are Dark

Sunday afternoon, a national tour of Porgy and Bess teamed up with Orchestra Miami for one performance.  Geg Stepanich spoke with conductor Elaine Rinaldi, and cast member Reggie Whitehead for the Miami Herald.

Meanwhile, Christine Dolen of the Miami Herald gives us some more background on In The Heights, which opens Tuesday at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.  She talks with Lin-Manuel Miranda, Alex Lacamoire, and Oscar Cheda.  IN fact, it turns out that Cheda and Lacamoire have a prior history:
The two met when Cheda was performing with a community theater group called the Lakewood Players in Kendall. Cheda got cast in The Pajama Game, and Lacamoire was hired to play piano. But because Lacamoire was just 13 then, Cheda would give him rides to and from rehearsals.
It's a small world.
