Mondays are Dark

It's a late, brief, post-holiday reading list for this Monday:

Monday isn't so Dark
Palm Beach DramaWorks presents an overview of the life and times of August Strindberg tonight and tomorrow night.  It's part of their Master Playwright Series.

Sharon Gless Interview
Christine Dolen interviews Sharon Gless for the Miami Herald.  Gless is appearing at GableStage in A Round Heeled Woman, currently in previews.  The show opens Saturday in Coral Gables.  And hey, there's video -

A Brush up for The Beast?

The Palm Beach Daily News reports that director Rob Roth will meet the show when it arrives at The Kravis Center on Tuesday.  Perhaps it's to address some of the things noted by when it played the Arsht Center last week.

Another Miami Playwright
The Miami New Times catches up with J. Sebastian Fabal about his musical, The Tenth Floor.  I confess, I'm not familiar with Mr. Fabal or his work.  A quick Google search shows that he participated int the Graduate Music Theatre Writing Program at the Tisch School for the Arts, receiving his Masters in 2009.  The Tenth Floor is his entry in this year's New York Musical Theatre Festival.

Party party! reports that Palm Beach DramaWorks will be holding a gala fundraiser on March 19th; and the theme will be 'Sardi's South.'

Say, Whatever Happened To...
TheatreMania reports that Marc Kudisch is preparing for his upcoming Town Hall concert.

Speaking of South Floridians on Broadway...
Wonderland, Frank Wildhorn's take on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, has undergone some streamlining and revisions in preparation for its arrival on Broadway. reports that some characters have been removed entirely, others re-written,  while still others have been re-cast (Well, the original little girl playing Alice's ten year old daughter must be well into puberty at this point, so that's no surprise).  But South Florida's Janet Dacal is still playing Alice.  The show will play briefly in Tampa before moving to The Great White Way.

The Write Way
The Shiny Sheet reports that playwright/novelist/biographer Julie Gilbert will be leading a series of workshops at The Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.
