Weekend Promos

Rather than wait for Monday, here's a smattering of articles about shows opening this weekend.

The Rock Musical
gives us the skinny on Andrews Living Arts Studio's
second (at least, the second one I know about) production, the classic
Rock Musical GODSPELL.
...this production produced by ANDREWS LIVING ARTS STUDIO may extend into the summer at a larger venue.
They did extend their first production, The Fantasticks.  I'm curious to see where they move to.

The Docu-Musical
Steve Rothaus takes a look at Rising Action Theatre's current production, Escorts: the Docu-Musical for The Miami Herald.  Rothaus talks with some of the escorts interviewed for the piece, and spoke with author Richard Leddick.
"What's most fascinating to me was the clients,'' Leddick says. ``It's part of American hypocrisy -- all the married men who are running around with other men."

The Short Play Festival
Sure, we had a lot of stories about City Theatre's Summer Shorts on Monday, but Christine Dolen did one more for today's Miami Herald.
In the 15 years since producer Stephanie Norman, playwright Susan Westfall and actor Elena Wohl sat around a kitchen table to cook up what has become a much-loved part of South Florida's theater landscape, Summer Shorts (despite the occasional head-scratching oddity) has repeatedly validated its founders' belief in the power of short-form theater.
This year, the festival plays in Miami's Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, but when it comes up to Broward for a final weekend, it will be playing at Nova Southeast's University School auditorium instead of the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.
