Mondays are Dark

Here's your Monday Reading List.

Remembering Carol Provonsha
The Naples News Stage Door reminds us that Florida Rep is hosting a memorial service for Carol Provonsha on Monday, May 17.  The Naples News published a lovely obituary, as well as a photo gallery.

Miami Stuff
The Drama Queen goes over the summer offerings from the Arsht Center.

Meanwhile, The Miami Herald reports that Arsht Center has teamed up with MadCat to bring us a scaled-up production of Marco Ramirez' Broadsword, which opens later this week.

The Miami Theatre Examiner reports that Spring Awakening is coming to the Arsht Center, and gives us some background on Raised in Captivity, the new play at New Theatre.

BroadwayWorld reports that The Playground Theatre has recieved an NEA grant to enhance accessibility to its workshops and productions.

Broward Beat
Are you joking?  That's Sun-Sentinel territory, which means there's no coverage of arts in Broward County.  But I happen to know that Mosaic Theatre had a successful weekend with Dying City, and that Infinite Abyss has extended the run of Stop Kiss at Empire Stage through May 9.

Palm Beach Happenings
A little further north, The Palm Beach Post talks with J. Barry Lewis, the director of the Palm Beach DramaWorks production of Edward Albee's Three Tall Women. The same article mentions upcoming shows at Slow Burn Theatre, which opens Stephen Sondheim's Assassins this week.  And speaking of Sondheim, we're reminded that the Caldwell Theatre is staging a concert version of his Into The Woods.

TheatreMania reports that Tony nominated (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) actor John Herrera will star in Florida Stage's production of When the Suns Shone Brighter, a world premiere of Christopher Demos-Brown's new play.  Herrera has appeared locally as Daddy Warbucks in the Actors' Playhouse production of ANNIE.  Other notable local actors include Brandon Morris (seen onstage at Actors' Playhouse, Caldwell, and TV's Burn Notice) and Bill Schwartz, former spokesman for the Miami Police Department, and a regular onstage at New Theatre.

Meanwhile... Palm Beach, the Royal Poinciana Playhouse is still closed.  But the Palm Beach Daily News reports that there is now a 425 page book about the history of the site the building stands on.
