Mondays are Dark

Or Not So Dark..
The Drama queen reports that this Monday is pretty busy for theatre lovers, and she's not referring to this column, or even Aisle Say at 2pm.  GableStage and Barry University are both staging play readings tonight.  It seems that both companies cribbed from the list of past and present Carbonnel Award nominees and winners for their cast lists.

Speaking of Readings

The Palm Beach Theatre Guild really does more than lobby for the preservation of the Royal Poinciana Playhouse.  The Shiny Sheet reports that on April 1st, J. Barry Lewis will be directing Barrie Ingham, Frank Converse, and Michael St. Pierre in a staged reading of The Day that Lehman Died, a play about the demise of the the financial services firm.

MadCat Goes Large
The Miami Theatre Examiner reports that Mad Cat Theatre Company will be presenting their critically acclaimed Broadsword at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. Sure, they'll be in the smallest performance space, but you could fit the entire Miami Lightbox (their current base of operations) into the Carnival Studio Theatre, with room to spare.

Photos of Orphans
No, not pictures of abandoned waifs - pictures of Alliance Theatre Lab's latest production of the play with that title, on their weblog.

Presto, Change-o!
The Drama Queen reports that Mosaic Theatre is replacing Boeing Boeing with Christopher Shinn's Dying City. Casting difficulties was cited as one of the reasons for the change.

Poster How-to
The Producer's Perspective brings us a lesson in how to make a great poster for a Broadway show - taught by the man who created the posters for The Lion King, Sweeney Todd, and Sunday in the Park with George.

The Future
Jan Sjostrom of The Shiny Sheet tells us about a young up-and-coming set designer.

Ahh, to be young in Spring...
EdgeMiami talks with Taylor Trensch, who will be appearing in the national tour of Spring Awakening when it stops at the Arsht Center in May.
