Mondays are Dark

Classical Music Beats Theatre
South Florida Theater Review reports that area theaters haven't stepped up to buy advertising at the only SoFla website creating new articles and reviews about theatre in any volume. 
Founded nine months ago to fill in the gaping hole in theater coverage, The Theater Review is based on the model of the older and more successful South Florida CLASSICAL Review, which was created to do the same thing for coverage of classical music.  And that model?  All the classical groups advertise with the Classical Review, recognizing that a site dedicated to covering what they are doing is a valuable asset, and a good place to advertise. South Florida Theater News issues a challenge to local theaters.

Teachable Moments
1st Draft goes to the Greenmarket, and connects with their audience - face to face.

Did We Mention?
Caldwell is bringing Ed Asner in to do his one-man FDR.  I think we've mentioned it, but this week it's in the South Florida Theater Review.

Speaking of Star Turns
Broadway World reports that George Hamilton is coming back to Palm Beach - to star in La Cage Aux Folles at the Kravis Center. 

Thespis Speaks
The Minnesota Playlist overhears the god of Theatre talking about the state of the art in America.
Yeah yeah yeah, the regional theater movement, blah blah blah, empowering communities, yada yada. How many of those city newspapers have a theater section? I’m not talking buildings, and tax writeoffs, I’m talking about the National watercooler chat room campus Conversation. Which is not and will never be about theater. Where’s the Thespian love?
South Florida on Broadway
Palm Beach ArtsPaper reports that Born Yesterday, which opened last week at the Cort Theater, was produced by three natives of Boca Raton.

Who's Responsible?
A lot of theaters and performing arts organizations have closed down in the last year or so, and The Wall Street Journal looks into the common cause.
