Mondays Are Dark

And suddenly, it's Monday again, and time for your Monday reading list.

Usually, it's a show that bombs

National theatre sources are abuzz about the car bomb that didn't go off in Times Square; Playbill, TheatreMania, The Playgoer, The Theatre Aficionado At Large, to name a few.

Wood Jubilee

Hm, that didn't have the impact I hoped for.  Anywho, Miami Today News reports that the Arsht Center has started planning for their 5th Anniversary next year.  Shh!  They're trying to keep it quiet!  As If.

Tall Tale
The Shiny Sheet's Jan Sjostrom talks with J. Barry Lewis about his current project, Edward Albee's Three Tall Women at Palm Beach Dramaworks.

Theatre is Life

Over on FirstDraft, Wayne LeGette recounts his encounter with a man who lived the life LeGette portrays onstage. A real retired radio repairman visits the set of Dr. Radio.

If You Were Blind
You would not be able to read this list; maybe you have a braille monitor.  But what about going to a show?  The Miami Herald and WLRN sit in on a recent performance of The Color Purple at the Broward Center to find out how Audio Description works.  And as is appropriate, it's not a written article but a streaming audio file.

They're Everywhere!
The Alliance Theatre Blog notes that members of their acting company are all over South Florida Stages.

The Miami Herald reports that the Actors' Playhouse had another good year with their Gala Reach for the Stars Auction, raising over $150,000 for capital improvements and operations in the coming year.

Another Score for the Bandit
The Sun Sentinel reports that  Palm Beach County has named a road after Burt Reynolds.  Not just any road: it's the one that leads to the Alexander Dreyfoos School of the Arts - formerly Burt's alma mater, Palm Beach High School.

Speaking of Movie Stars

Well, speaking of movies, actually.  The Coconut Grove Grapevine gives us an update on goings on at the Miami Film Office.  Mayor Manny Diaz recently replaced longtime director Robert Parente, with Harry Emilio Gottlieb. A lot of industry insiders lambasted the move.  And it sounds like they were right.
